This Too Shall Pass – #zenquote #zen

Elyane S. Youssef writes for Elephant Journal, and one article of zen quotes caught my eye, and I wrote a series of poems on them, of which this is one…

The troubles and fears that to your eyes bring tears
They too shall pass

The joys of the heart when love does start
They too shall pass

The horrific wars and killing that destroys, God willing
They too shall pass

The eerie peace when the fighting does cease
They too shall pass.

Be not drunk on joy, or let trouble your peace destroy
They too shall pass

This too shall pass... #zenquote
This too shall pass… #zenquote
