The place of pain

Life in very being
is born in full desire,
wanting things is natural,
it is the way we're made.
But misery will make its mark
when we turn to demand,
and dictate what must be;
reject the greater plan.
It is within this needing,
that doors will open wide,
and take us to the place of pain;
our suffering ensured.
When we live with acceptance,
embrace what comes to us,
we settle into peace of mind;
and welcome joy's deep grace.
