God and devil

Tender human eyes cannot see them, they would be no match

Perhaps blinded, by dazzling brightness or dizzying darkness

Comfortable with softer shades of light, imagination is set free

Distilled over centuries, condensed dogmas have coalesced

Debates continue, those irked pick up fights, threatening the ones

Whose minds are fed something else, why can’t we get along?

Leaving God and Devil aside, forces of good and evil are part of our lot

Setting fire to our thoughts, caught in that inferno, where else would one turn?

With the mind ablaze, the bartering starts, giving one up to gain the other

Good and evil, are our making, but they are personified and sent away

Making us forget, divisiveness lives in the mind, and unity beyond it

That must be considered, not names, forms or paths, the source of our breakups
