‘Friction’ – Andrew Griffes

What frustrates you most with your work?
With your family?
With your self?
That is the friction for your fire,
the fire that others will gather round
to warm their hands and hearts
to tell their stories
That friction is the prayer of your worry and angst,
all that confronts you and defeats you.
And you fight on, surrendered.
Only the question in your heart
remains when the world has burned through
your certainties.
