As the sun rises on this strange new world I wonder, what can I do?
I want not to feel this ache.
This void inside that I do not command,
that it seems I can’t even touch or influence in the slightest way.
I feel thin, spread over so much that it s like not being there at all.
My heart and mind are at odds with reality.
I don’t know how to fix it.
We often don’t question who made the path we walk, until we reach its end.
By then; who and why, may seem like more important questions.
I will continue to make my own road and walk in my own way.
I will be kind to everything, everyday.
I will love all forms of life, the earth and the dirt we all rely on.
I will breath through my anger.
Fear is the valley that catches hate.
It can stain landscape.
Blaming the blameless and multiplying suffering for all.
Breath is the wind that clears it out.
Practicing love, gives us wings to see that all those chasms and deep caves; are actually very small when you can fly above them.
If you have wings, they don’t matter at all.
A journey that could take days on foot; through country that bites and scars, might only last a pleasant hour from the air.
It does not due to be kind, only when faced with kindness.
It only matters when we would be justified in lashing out- and don’t.
We cannot relate to one another outside of the experiences that make up each individual life.
If someone has never experienced flight, you can’t tell them how much happier it would make them.
Words are empty without feeling behind them.
Some people must be shown what it looks like to step off the rim of the valley of hatred and soar above it.
We all must make the choice to try it for ourselves.
Above all remember:
Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
Ember – are you ok? Is everything ok at home??
You are too funny! I know it might seem very grim but it is more about the state of our nation than a personal issue 🙂 thank you for the concern! We are all very well and happy. Much love!
