Buried treasure

The “X” on your treasure map
         is usually a wound.

Your buried treasure takes a lot of digging,
         or sometimes just sitting there.

The latch on your treasure chest
         is usually a silly little thing.

But it seldom opens easily.
         You sealed it shut for a reason.

Sometimes the Beloved lifts it open for you.
         Or pushes it open from inside.

It's bigger on the inside than the outside.
         You have to climb in.

There's never anything in there.
         Just you, as you were created,

beloved,
         treasured.
