Washed on the Shore


The mystery of disaster is not that we are made stronger,

it is in knowing our humanity, that we are not gods

and that pain can be pushed through with

supernatural strength, proving

 that our sand is more powerful

than the burnt bamboo

washed on the shore.


And our lives are more than what happens to us,

and the washing away, makes us even more – beautiful.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”
