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
