when I started to listen to my pain….

without judgement….

without filters….

my rage disappeared…

because it couldn’t live….

in a place where love had begun to live….

and when I took the time to take care of myself…

by all the little things….

investing time and energy and love in taking care of my..

thoughts….

heart….

mind…

life…

my hate faded….

when I began to truly…truly love myself…

the bitterness, the resentment, the pain, the emptiness, the loneliness, the tears….

faded away into love….

fear cannot live in a place where love is….

fear cannot destroy love….

fear cannot break love…

fear has no real power….

fear has no courage….

fear is easy…

fear is simple…

fear is black and white….

fear is a coward…

you cannot heal hate with more hate….

you cannot heal anger with more anger….

you cannot heal pain with causing more pain….

an eye for an eye methodology…

will burn down this whole world….

in a blaze of fires and destruction…

love never acts in violence….

love never seeks to harm…

love never finds enjoyment in seeing others suffer….

love never plans to break…

wanting justice…

is not the same as wanting revenge….

wanting peace…

is not the same as starting a war….

if love could see you right now…

it would not want you to harm another….

it would not want you to respond to violence with more violence….

but you have every right to be angry….

and you have every right to grieve….

but this is just crazy….

the world is breaking apart….

and fear rules the shattered heart…

how many more lives will be lost..

violence and suffering have a very human cost….
