In the End
We can all get a little agro when it comes how we look and how people perceive us. We want to be thought of in a certain way and what we believe about our bodies either helps or hinders that image.
We also want to be recognized for our great work. We secretly (and not so secretly) hope our bodies, accomplishments and accolades will be proof that we are enough, finally acceptable, and hopefully worthy of love.
I adore this poem by my dear friend Tara Mohr for in it she asks us to ponder that perhaps it’s not what we do that’s important, but rather the journey; that our truest accomplishment is courageously walking the path of life, rather than how we looked or what we left behind on it.
In the End By Tara Mohr
In the end
you won’t be known
for the things you did,
or what you built,
or what you said.
You won’t even be known
for the love given
or the hearts saved,
because in the end you won’t be known.
You won’t be asked, by a vast creator full of light:
What did you do to be known?
You will be asked: Did you know it,
this place, this journey?
What there is to know can’t be written.
Something between the crispness of air
and the glint in her eye
and the texture of the orange peel.
What you’ll want a thousand years from now is this:
a memory that beats like a heart—
a travel memory, of what it was to walk here,
alive and warm and textured within.
Sweet brightness, aliveness, take-me-now-ness that is life.
You are here to pay attention. That is enough.
