245 – Buddha

I didn’t expect it
To hurt so much.

I searched
For ultimate truth,
And found it.

This was supposed
To be a moment
Of liberation.

Why does it hurt
So much?

Of course,
Silly me.

I forgot knowledge
Not only comes
In all shapes
And flavors.

It’s also
A very sharp
Double-edged
Sword.

It takes
More than
A strong hand
To hold it.

You need
The skill
To wield it
Without carving
Your own heart
Out.
