Raw (for Sunday Scribblings)

Uncooked, unrefined
In their natural state

Our emotions
Are nothing more
Than energy moving

It is us
Who shape and define them
Attach a story

And then we complain
About what they
Do to us

This poem was inspired by a quote from Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche: “Fundamentally emotions don’t bother us, we bother them.”
