Open flames give off heat. What a revelation!
It’s no wonder that when I touch one I get burned.
Logic dictates that it’s best for me to avoid
Anything that is painful or gets me annoyed.
Should my sources of agony be of concern?
When I am burning what should be the duration?
Discordant and uncomfortable people show
Up in my life because I’m hooked into that part
Of their energy. It’s a co-creative dance
That holds me in a most difficult circumstance.
Some people are like burners. It’s not very smart
To go near their direct flame. This much I do know.
If I have touched a hot stove, the question should be,
“What do I do next?” The answer comes right away.
“Take your hand off the hot stove immediately!
It’s not worth abundance, wellness, and clarity.
In this awful condition do you want to stay?”
That this is good advice I would have to agree.
The next time that I feel anger or injustice,
I might say to myself, “I’ve not yet decided
How long I will use you to not let myself be
In a state of wellbeing. You definitely
Did me wrong, and my anger can’t be derided,
But I’d rather be free to experience bliss.”
