(wrote this years ago … don’t know when)
Is my will to involve myself with others intimately,
my enemy or my remedy?
As love is the precursor to all life
I approach these encounters timidly.
For, the actual factual truth of things is that
My soul sings in the deep connection
To other human beings.
The zenfinite source oversees The
subtle abstractions of my course.
Thus, I trust that the awareness of my
Self-limitations and that of others will
Allow this exploration to not be followed
By shallow hollowed perceptions
Derived from misunderstanding.
Sometimes we make promises that our
Inability to see the future can’t hold.
Let the truth be told – revealed
To be the seal of our interaction.
I’m handing the raw expression of my love to you
As I journey on my path with hopes that we can
Enjoy what life has to offer, then laugh about it later.
There is an equator that unites both sides of our brain,
But 90% of it remains unused.
So, please excuse me if I abuse you with
My evolving maturation.
Elevation is my only aim
Love is all that I claim.
Hopefully the expression of its bounty is the only stain
That’s left ascending from my breath.
Each day there is a death, for the past has ended
And only lives in our memory.
So, enemy or remedy?
There’s a thin line between pain and pleasure.
Within my connection to others all I wish to do
Is realize treasures of The Divine.
Love, honor, respect, compassion – various
Beauties of human potential.
Quintessential moments when time disappears
And our ears open to the omnipresent unity of our togetherness.
Embracing all that is – witnessing the intelligence
Of The Most Benevolent, Merciful, Sustainer of Creation.
I’m human — flawed, unevolved, limited in my comprehension.
I’m maturing my connection with you to help ease our tensions.
Internal ascension and expansion is now
So, along the way, if my ignorance undermines our intersection
You know assumption, pre-judgment, blind passion and projection –
Tainting our connection.
I hope that in reflection
You’ll understand that I wanted this love to be our remedy
Not our enemy.
