Some Say You’re Lucky

Where the beloved is born…


Some say you’re lucky
If nothing shatters it.

But then you wouldn’t
understand poems or songs.
You’d never know
beauty comes from loss.

It’s deep inside every person:
A tear tinier
than a pearl or thorn.

It’s one of the places
where the beloved is born.

~ Gregory Orr, Some Say You’re Lucky
