This is the dawn’s chorus

Gently echoing throughout our day

This is the breaking

That calls before the breakthrough

This is great love

Imbued with discontented suffering

This is letting go

So that we may learn to freely receive

This is the change

Accelerating us rapidly into progress

This is uncomfortable

Yet we see the necessity in its arrival

This is understanding

What it is to not know until it’s too late

This is the slumber

From which we were destined to awake
