Dharma of the Day #16 {brotherhood}

stop for a moment!!

shift your mind

are we not all brothers and sisters?

 

we share much more

than we differ,

do we not?

 

the trenches and minefields

which we each build

waste only blood and, life

 

and it is so very sad to see

so many poppies growing

who unlike us, have learned

 

to bow their heads

 

put aside all your bile

and that jar of gall-stones

place it next, the vinegar

 

maybe you are better

than me

and, fully omniscient

 

I would not have the

responsibility for your, omniscience

no, not, for all the tea in China !!

 

I am sad for the burden

which you bear

but only in your mind

 

stop for a moment!!

shift your mind

are we not all brothers and sisters?

 

we share much more

than we differ,

do we not?
