That Language

That Language

I don’t Speak the Language

of Violent and Vengeful Hate,

having lived Many Lives

of Differing Perspectives

seen from both sides

of so many Human Conflicts,

those Closed and Divisive Gates.

I do Understand how even

Righteous Anger often turns

into Uncontrolled Rage,

that Mindless Fire that burns

Hearts and Minds of many a Soul

in Savage Actions and Reactions,

that Primitive Language of Hate

creating many a Hellish State

in Times both Past and Present.

We can Understand

yet Choose Not to Partake,

Choose Not to Participate,

Choose Not to Communicate

in the Language of Violence

and Words of burning Hate.

We can Educate

ourselves and others

to Speak the Language

of a Higher Vision

of our Humanity

beyond Voices of Division,

beyond Illusions of Supremacy

that create Disunity,

Pain, Destruction and Death.

Love of Life Itself, All Life,

is the Highest Wisdom

and the Language

all True Masters know.

We can Learn how

to Speak That Language too.

What would such Love do now?

What do we Choose To Be

in this Life of Here and Now?
