earth: move

It is not always easy, no

not easy in the easy

not easy until we
grasp the simplest
meaning of easy,

which is to say

it is not easy until
we look past the barricades,
the obstacles, the hardship

until we decide that
what is beyond them
is what is most important,

that the cliffs were made
for climbing as much as falling,

that perhaps we have been
swimming against the current
instead of with it
all along,

that we can ask ourselves
what is there, on the horizon
waiting for us and see
that the sun has been
inviting us into its light,
not trying to blind us,
all along

and then, yes,
it is easy.
