No Victims Here (17a)

NO VICTIMS HERE

Never mind
The finger-pointing
At others
Circumstance
Take responsibility
Take charge, take the wheel

One Valiant Victim

ONE VALIANT VICTIM

Are we not all the one
For whom the bell tolls
While currently being
If we care so to be also
The one with the balls?

Open Ended

OPEN ENDED

You are invited to take the air
On wings for too long trussed
(Not the best sort of trust)
So switch craving to braving
Half the sky is already yours
The other half yours to explore

Fearspawn

FEARSPAWN

Many people believe
(Having been taught so)
That love and hatred are opposites

But in my experience this is not correct
The true opposite of love is fear

Fear is the ground
From which hatred grows

Love opens us up
Fear closes us down

We no longer see
So we imagine

And hate what
We think we see

To overcome our hatred
We must first overcome our fear
Of our fellows and of ourselves

Fearless … or timid?
She loves me … she loves me not
Her favourite game

Kudos

KUDOS

Your gentle courage
An example to us all
Who strive day by day

Honesty

HONESTY

Revealing the fears
Hidden behind little lies
The first step forward

Adversity

ADVERSITY

This one’s for Audrey (and many another).

I hit the road
It hit me back
We paused a mo
Now here we go

Learning Pattern (A Four By Six)

LEARNING PATTERN

The challenge: not to flinch
Or having flinched return
To that from which one flinched
And emerge emboldened

Or Or

OR OR

Relations are fraught
Far too wrapped up in ego
Celibacy rules
Or so monks and nuns tell us
Or maybe they’re just cowards
