“Understanding Through Love”


Show Text

one only understands what one loves.
it follows that when one is wont
to condemn and revile;
the sole solution is to see the object
with the eyes of love.
for, if one tries this technique!
then mayhap, it changes
the judgement, one employs.
oh, what a beautiful world, it may be;
if one and all shall try this course.
then perchance, the world shall be
a better place for everyone.

“Ten Tiny Pills”


Show Text

ten tiny pills from the lady;
she hands them all to me.

ten tiny pills, i count;
one to ten, i see.

ten tiny pills to freedom;
a little gift for me.

ten tiny pills and water;
adrift i go, you’ll see.

ten tiny pills, my heart to ease;
you take them all from me.

ten tiny pills go down the drain.
you hug me, fiercely.
i come back to thee.

“Don’t Tell Me To Move On”


Everyone has their own way of dealing with grief. Telling someone to “move on” is a tactless way of undermining what they’re going through–despite real intent, whether it be out of concern or not.
