Science is for those who learn; poetry, for those who know. — Joseph Roux, Meditations of a Parish Priest
To be a poet is a condition, not a profession. — Robert Frost
Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry. — Gustave Flaubert

~ Soul vs. World ~

The world screams of hate
My soul whispers Love
They try to steal your spirit
My soul connects with One

The world beats and whips you
My soul stands back Up
They kick and hit and pull you down
My soul survives uncut

The world twists and lies
My soul relies on Truth
They mock, berate, say hateful words
My soul remains unbruised

The world holds a grudge
My soul seeks to Forgive
They harbor pain, repeat mistakes
My soul absolves and lives

The world often cries
My soul extends Compassion
They shed their tears and realize fears
My soul's love is never rationed

The world resists change
My soul craves new Knowledge
They hang onto death and rituals
My soul conquers ancient bondage

The world is transformed
My soul expands in Love
They embrace Light and hand in hand
My soul and world are One
