Touching Fire

Fire is hot and it hurts you when you touch it

It only hurts because if it didn’t

Your brain would never learn

To protect you from harm

That’s PhysioLogical.

But if an external source of

Pain or danger

Has no proximity to a nerve

The brain has no reason

To protect you.

The heart doesn’t have anything to do with anything

Conscious or otherwise

It’s a student of our mind

But sometimes it aches when the intangible harms us.

You have to decide

If it aches enough

To be courageous and bold

To confront the unnamed

And name it.

Face it, touch it, hurting…

Hurting until your brain believes you are on fire

Then you can forgive

Because fire does not intend to hurt

It simply does
