I just was inspired to this by a post talking about spiritual love.

How can I hate myself
when there is so much to love,
to forgive, to heal, to feel, express
and enact?
Indiscretions and unbridled liberty
have caused untold anger,
and while a woman is generally
considered allowed to cry,
and a man is not,
sadness and imagination provide
plenty of options for
confident actions of justice.
The Hatfields and McCoys
revengeful feuding martyrs,
lived in woods, and hills, and amongst
waters, running in streams and
flowing into wells
And all the time, maybe with a soft shout,
a soul can climb
to find another way out.
Knowledge and Industry
from farms to computer wizardry
elevate the mind, and strengthen the body
to counter the desire to
act out inevitably. where the eagle flies [img]http://www.thesimpsons.com/[/img]

I find this to me a very positive and hopeful poem. It is great to read things like this. It shows that we can move.
Thank you for sharing this.
