It doesn't interest me
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I
want to know what you ache for, and if you dare
to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to
know if you will risk looking like a fool for love,
for your dreams,for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring
your moon. I want to know if you have touched
the center of your own sorrow, if you have been
opened by life's betrayals or if you have become
shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. I
want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your
own, without moving to hide or to fade, or fix. I
want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your
own, if you can dance with the wildness and let
the Ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and
toes without cautioning to be careful,to be
realistic, or to remember the limitations of being
It doesn't interest me if the story you're telling is
true. I want to know if you can disappoint another
to be true to your self, if you can bear the
accusations of betrayal and not betray your own
soul. I want to know if you can be faithful and
therefore be trust worth. I want to know if you
can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day.
I want to know if you can live with failure,yours
or mine.and still stand on the edge of a lake and
shout to the full moon, "YES"
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or
how much money you have. I want to know if you
can get up after the night of grief and despair,
weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs
to be done.
It doesn't interest me who you are, or how you
came here. I want to know if you will stand in the
center of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It don't interest me where or with whom you
have studied. I want to know what sustains you
from the inside when all else falls away. I want to
know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you
truly like the company you keep.
In His Love,
