Setting Traps for the Sacred


Caution is a common error
When setting traps for the sacred.

Take your spirit forcibly
And make it into something
Other than your self.

Be like the fish that fights upstream
To recreate its kind before expiring.

Life survives by fighting odds;
Keep your inner self alive
By reaching for extremes of
Understanding and compassion.
