not one more drop of hate

i will not add
one more drop of hate
to the world.
it is too full
already
and overflowing.

i will not give
my allegiance
to fear,
or vengeance.

the world is drowning
in fear

no. i will swim against the tide
of lemmings 
and strive for the kind of 
love
that has no opposite

i will surrender this ego 
saturated self
on the cross
and pour out
the milk of
loving kindness
into the broken world.

unless i take the stand
and allow myself to die
into this love
how can i expect anyone else
to?

there is a crucifixion
that calls us all
every moment
of every day.

Religion and Nature
