[POEM] emotion

Encourage me to avoid the enigmatic;

entice my curiosity toward the extraordinary.

Excuse me if I make excuses, for

emphatic am I to emerge

the essence of your élan vital.

Enable my strength. Encapsulate me,

whilst I embrace your energy.

Equal are we, entangled in

emotion.

Decided to do a free style letter prompt today. I should have gone for more structure but I didn’t have the time to devote to it tonight. Hopefully tomorrow night will have more promising endeavors. Cheers all.

[POEM] Home

Life finally starts;
settled in bed beside you,
I am home at last.

My things are scattered
in the hall; box upon box,
waiting for their place.

The morning finds me
sighing my goodbyes; knowing
after every day,
from now ’til death eternal,
I’ll always come home to you.

[DISCUSS] Golden Rule Edited: Love Thyself, THEN Thy Neighbor

“Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you. [is] (…) the single greatest, simplest, and most important moral axiom humanity has ever invented, one which reappears in the writings of almost every culture and religion throughout history, the one we know as the Golden Rule.”          ~Ebon Musings, ‘A dialogue for the modern world’, Adam Lee (Humanism)

“The sage has no interest of his own, but takes the interests of the people as his own. He is kind to the kind; he is also kind to the unkind: for Virtue is kind. He is faithful to the faithful; he is also faithful to the unfaithful: for Virtue is faithful.”          ~Tao Te Ching, Chapter 49 (Taoism)

“Just as pain is not agreeable to you, it is so with others. Knowing this principle of equality treat other with respect and compassion.”          ~Suman Suttam, Verse 150 (Jainism)

“Love your neighbor as you love yourself.”          ~The Bible, Luke 10:27 (Christianity)

“One should never do that to another which one regards as injurious to one’s own self. This, in brief, is the rule of dharma. Other behavior is due to selfish desires.”          ~Anusasana Parva, Section CXIII, Verse 8 (Hinduism)

“Blessed is he who preferreth his brother before himself.”          ~Bahá’u’lláh (Bahá’í Faith)
