The World Also Has a Soul

With enough time
... and become
presumptuous
that who what and how
we are... 
will remain
just as we experience
them...
unwittingly
inter acting with each other
 
assuming
that
 there will be
time to retrieve
an unkind word
a cruel gesture
or unloving touch.
 
We begin... with so much
optimism or pessimism
for ourselves and others
only to find out otherwise.
 
We
spend our energy
on something
thinking IT IS
everything
only to find
out IT IS
nothing.
 
Experiencing time
IT
has shown us
what we do right
how and why we do wrong
... again and again.
 
Do we listen
to how we feel?
When our
throats tighten up
tummies go in knots
as our breath staggers
in pseudo-hyperventilation
and everyone around
is dissatisfied.
 
Can we stop ourselves
from choosing fear
and its offshoots?
... When our addictions
to validation
n victimization
compels n initializes
ALL we do.
 
Can we
stay still when
predisposed to move
Choose self knowledge
over knowledge of others
Lend a hand
instead of
taking a hand?
 
Can we
Give breath
rather than
Take breath
 
just becoz
.. You Feel deeply
just bcoz
 
Eventually
We
get tired
of fear and its
disappointments
anger, resentments
depression, worry
and separation
from each other
 
at some point
WE
BE gin
to risk vulnerability
and
attempt
To Love
even
IF
we know nothing
about love
 
Discovering
that
We are
indeed
Sacred
and part
of Everything
We
Resist and Accept.
 
NOW
Life
Be gins....
