Entrenched in turmoil, holding my ground,
Battling this foe, as they’re staring me down,
We’re both so different, my fear takes a hold,
I stick to one side, or there’s judgement, we’re told.
Incorrect, call a truce, as diplomacy reigns,
Don’t spend your time fighting, it’s best to embrace,
There’s a better way, rather than pain or surrender,
Complementary opposites, thriving together.

War comes in many forms, some of them reach for hundreds of miles and change the face of the planet; others reside within, changing the depth and reach of the soul and the heart. This piece touches on them all, and highlights their common denominator… that we are all part of the same Universe, a Universe currently attacking itself!
Millions of people have lost their lives over the ages, and continue to, because repeatedly, generation after generation have allowed ignorance, fear and greed to control them, and have sought to feed the belly of hatred! The Hatred Banquet has been the main agenda for millennia, hating others, and ourselves.
As a species, we think we are extremely advanced, but we can act so primitive, destructive and counterintuitive. It also pains me that many of us can’t yet unite under a lasting banner of love and acceptance; it brings a tear to my eye, to see people unable to appreciate their wonderful, natural features.
Let’s stop the war between masculine and feminine energies, and champion both; let’s heal wounds and build bridges; let’s all feed the belly of love; let’s embrace the differences of others, and realise that we all embody beauty, and our uniqueness, only amplifies it.
Love and Respect always,
