Fine lines between love and hate,

how can it be so?

…….

That the same heart

can produce these great contradictions?

…………….

As the Buddha said,

these demons must be understood

as life within the same spirit,

a part of the endless fluctuations of the human experience.

……………

How does one respond compassionately,

when the ego is bruised,

the body is weak,

the heart has been torn,

the mind plans revenge,

the eyes cannot see what’s ahead,

the spirit ~ a mere apparition?
