Here’s another poem,
like all others before and after,
dedicated to you.
There isn’t anything left to be said
but I will spend my life
trying to put you into words.
You who is every goodness,
Your love is a better fate for me
than anything I could wish for.

And if you’re separate from me,
then you are my destination.
But I?ve become a weary traveller,
let us never be apart.
— Kamand Kojouri

— Author-Poet Aberjhani, The River of Winged Dreams
Vulnerability is not knowing victory or defeat, it?s understanding the necessity of both; it?s engaging. It?s being all in.
