Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Pause And Consider…

If we loved others as we love ourselves

Would that be loving them at all?

——Giving is contingent on having something to give

If we love ourselves as we love our neighbor…What would that look like?

They are one and the same, interchangeable

 

If we expect to be forgiven the same way that we forgive

Would our forgiveness be fleeting and conditional?

Would we nurse resentments while we live?

 

If we took more than a moment to examine

What we think and believe

If we paused to consider at all

Would we find unsurfaced contradictions in understanding?

Would we ignore, or seek remedy?

 

We are connected, one to the other

Just below the surface we intertwine

Contributors to the same light and same darkness

Existing in realms hidden

The notion of our own island is an illusion

Love is the ultimate answer, all inclusive

Love of others, love of self

We are created with purpose

Hatred fuels separation

Poisons the soul

Assaults our brothers and sisters

Builds walls where none should go

Life is so much more than our own desires and designs

I wish you love for right now and all times
