SHOW UP  by Minx Boren

I am sharing a poem with you by Minx Boren. It has been meaningful to me in my morning meditations this past week and I hope you will find it meaningful as well.

SHOW UP  by Minx Boren

Show up

Not because you should

Not because you must

but because of the magnitude of love

because of the magnetic force of compassion

Show up 

because you can

because life has come knocking

and you are there to answer now

not when or then

but in the immediate potency of the call

Show up 

not because it is time or timely

not because it is easy or tough

smooth or rough

not because it is reasonable or not

but because this is what matters


no matter

what next

Show up

because it feels right and real

because it makes your heart sing

or sob

because it might ache

or break

if you did not

because joy lives in the present.

In your presence

Just show up.
