Be not political or judgemental;
Hold not bitterness or revenge.
Strive to learn a humble path
And contemplate on human wrath.
Life’s bitter blow or unjust wrong
Mere reflections within life’s karma.
Broken tooth, nay blinded eye,
Tis better let the hurt go by.
Within the ying, there lies yang
Within the heart a demon.
Control, not your wayward brother
But reflect back all his colour.
Brings forth visions of the soul
Not drain away its beauty.
The life we share, this universe,
Its harmony is our duty.

"Hold not bitterness or revenge"
wonderfully cleansing, cathartic verse, this, and one that is, in today's climate, sadly more pertinent than ever. think this makes both a good personal mantra and a sound moral philosophy for the world, generally…

your poem is timely for me personally, also, a well-worded reminder indeed. enjoyed.

Howard's Zen contemplations...
I want to pick a favorite line here but I can't but it is in perfect harmony as a whole, which is your message about the wholeness of our oneness and duty to it, especially those who contemplate, meditate, prayer or mantra...the message here is wise can a daily mantra or positive affirmation as reminder to go beyond the limitations and illusion of ego.
