Be Light, Be Love, Be Kind

by SilverAngelFire

Age Group: Adult

Be Light, Be Love, Be Kind

The Goddess smiles upon us all
At one time or another,
Even Pele, with her penchant for fire
Finds compassion amid life’s trials
Certainly tough roads to travel
Those littered with pain and pitfalls
Without which we’d ne’er move forward
Left right, left right, left right, onward
From heaven to hell and back again
In my hand once I held my entire world
A second in time that likened eternity
Not nearly long enough before it was gone
At once, the lava I’d been accustomed
Slowly began to cease its rise, ever swiftly
Receding from my heart and mind
My only regret…everything
Perhaps only what I could not see before
Bewildered by the crushing weight of hatred
Looking to the world I sense only desolation
I implore everyone, when given the chance
Be light, be love, and for God’s sake be kind
Nothing takes as little thought or effort
See your brothers, your sisters, your children
Parents and loved ones, then embrace them
Foremost and without condition
Else wither with the passing of the storm


Author's Notes: I lost my brother 10 years ago this month. We'd raise holy hell with each other. Neither of us ever really saw eye to eye or agreed much with what the other was doing. We'd even gone as far to stop speaking. Then in the blink of an eye he was gone. I miss him very much.

It took a long time and a lot of growing up to realize that none of it mattered. Who are we to take away what makes another person happy, especially those that we love. It's hard to not let our own emotions get in the way, but that's our own issue not theirs. If you are able to look in their eyes and see them, happy, energized and passionate about something, then that's all that matters. How can we ask for any more than that.
