Love Yourself

Love starts with you and has no end.
It begins when you love your life’s best friend.
Look in the mirror and who do you see?
Hopefully, you’ll smile and wink proudly.
You and your ego will be so much nearer
When you love that smiling face in the mirror.
If you can’t say “I love myself humbly,”
Then you can’t love others genuinely.
Self love isn’t selfish nor is it vain.
Self love is the Foundation which will sustain
Our selfless feelings for our fellow man
To help through our life as best we can.
What do clouds feel if you haven't flown?
You can’t reflect love if you can’t feel your own.
You can’t enjoy that book on the library shelf,
If you’ve never learned to read yourself.
Nor can you appreciate a foreign to tongue
Without learning words from it’s very first rung.
Hearing but not knowing a word. So it is with love.
Avoid abandoning it with an emotional shove.

One who lacks a sense of justice lacks certain fundamental attitudes and capacities included under the notion of humanity. Now the moral feelings are admittedly unpleasant, in some extended sense of unpleasant; but there is no way for us to avoid a liability to them without disfiguring ourselves. This liability is the price of love and trust, of friendship and affection, and of devotion to institutions and traditions from which we have benefited and which serve the general interests of mankind... by understanding what it would be like not to have a sense of justice - that it would be to lack part of our humanity too - we are led to accept our having this sense.

Song of an Old Cypress

Before the Kongming Temple
lies an ancient cypress
With boughs of bronze
and roots of rock.
Its frosty skin rains down,
encircling the span of forty arms;
Its dark green leaves can reach
some two thousand feet of sky.
Ministers and rulers
had set a time to meet
And the trees they left behind,
the locals revered.
Clouds are coming now, bringing an air
that sits about the Witch's Gorge
While the moon sends a cold that passes
the mountain’s snowy white.

I recall in former times the path
around the Brocade Pavilion, to the east—
Lord Liu Bei and Kongming,

Human Beings

Uncle Dan said
'now listen
There's right and there's wrong
and there two kinds of people:

those that can't be trusted to be right
and those that cannot be trusted with being wrong.

Take out the microscope and lets' see
what that person does when they
have you in the wrong.

If they treat you like you ain't' human
anymore
then that is the face of evil.

I worry more about those who
think they's absolutely right tho
than those that know's they's wrong.
