Cannot Be Left Behind

Cannot Be Left Behind

                                                      Below The Falls ~ Philip Brent Harris


It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth.


Some will die early and some will die late.
Does it matter only to any we love or hate?
Hate will damage us, suck out our marrow,
until we have no feeling, life only harrows.

Do our personal tragedies, triumphs count,
turn on what we gave or give, not amount?
If we learn to see love, I do not mean find,
source of everything, cannot be left behind.

If we only see hate, it’s but love perverted,
Filling our eyes, when rejected or deserted.
It’s the opposite pole on our life’s magnet.
Whether positive or negative, all we’ll get.

It’s merely the dichotomy of all existence.
Nothing is solo, not attraction  resistance.
How we live while here, only true choice.
Mourn alone or join together and rejoice.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
