Together, We Against Ourselves

Together, We Against Ourselves
Together, We Against Ourselves

Together we, minds akin,
lives woven far less than sin,
to imbue the joy of being,
of seeing life for its potential,
not laden with the obstacles
than can haunt a mind,
but rather take the challenges
that assist our evolving knowledge,
our ascending souls of love’s undress.

For in purity love transcends all else,
and petty concerns fall
by the wayside of thought,
rather living a paradigm of love’s purpose,
in service of our kind,
and in sharing together
we find solace in not being alone,
stand firm on solid ground,
and watch the insanity go around.

Our perspective may be different,
long outplayed our innocence,
but all those lives of raping, pillaging and carnage,
have honed beings of profound knowledge,
and our moral turpitude
directed us to a spiritual view,
and evolve we must to uphold
this path of learning, as finally
we see the insanity and judge it not.

Where we’ve been, what we’ve seen,
gives rise to many things,
and together so much water under that bridge,
we’ve learned and suffered at our own hands,
and did what we wanted,
regardless of the damage,
but now we are settled in perspective,
kindness in our hearts and love as our elective,
holds us in good keeping.

This life we’re closer,
perhaps know more than other lives,
and paths have been erratic, painful,
yet now we have the knowing to understand,
and share what souls do
when connection is universal,
when together we have spanned centuries,
lived and died, loved and thrived,
lost and won life’s review.
