I can deal with my own contrast but watching those
Who experience trauma much greater than mine
Takes me deep into darkness where I don’t belong.
I feel that my feeling what they’re feeling is wrong.
It would be an atrocity if I felt fine
When I see people living among the shadows.
I’m not in tune with my inner being. That’s why
I can’t feel true compassion in a selfish way
Which means getting in touch with their inner being.
Theirs and mine have a different way of seeing
What looks much like disaster. I’m willing to pay
More attention to what my spirit won’t deny.
The assumption is that contrast is a bad thing.
But does everyone feel the same thing when they see
It around them? Does everyone feel the same way
About contrast? What does my spirit have to say
About it? Am I allowing myself to be
Of some help through the vibration I’m offering?
Contrast is beneficial. It helps us to grow
Into master creators. Each burning desire
Born of contrast serves everyone in the long run.
One can know that true enlightenment has begun
When one sees contrast as something life must require
For expansion. We must learn to go with the flow.
