Prose; What is Spirit?

VibrantHealth-2


When I can feel my breath and the warmth of my flesh,

When my memories of joy and pleasure enmesh.

When my anger calms and I hold my tongue,

I know it’s a higher mind bar none.

When lusty and fun, no thought for the other,

Takes over my mind I’m reigned in like a mother.

I don’t want ONE brownie, I want the whole pan,

No. That’s not loving yourself, damn!

If I had my dumb way, I’d do myself in,

Self-loathing, sabotage, abuse are great kin.

But Spirit informs me, breaks my cold heart,

I have no chance of bullshit to impart.

I’m shown who I am in the mirror each day,

Just one person, quite different who can do as she may.

The only purpose of life is to show love and forgiveness,

If you’re not doing that then there is no goodness.
