Gift for the Soul

Do not be tamed and subdued
by pain and illness
rather let them cleanse you
of arrogance, making way
for compassion, forgiveness
open to receive spiritual insight.

Let suffering be a cleansing fire
burning away impatience, meanness
prejudice, indifference.
Be thankful for your problems
for each offer room to grow
each a gift for the soul.
