We are as weak as our strongest desire.
We are as charitable because of love as we are rapacious due to greed.
The sun everyday feeds a million flowers
And some of those days it’s burned a million leaves.
The moon has caused the ocean waters to flood a land,
While craving the mountains on which we stand.
We want just as much as we need.
We surround one another as much as we leave.
And the best of friends become strangers, or worst…enemies.
We have healed as many hearts as we have broken.
We have been so numb
While in the same moment, overrun by emotion.
And we have been blind while at the same time seen…
This is humanity
This is nature
This is balanced reciprocity
