The Power

the power of life
and of death
are held by the same hand
arise from the same source

all energy is one energy
neither good nor bad
healing or hurtful

until we make it so

emotion is but
one of the multitude of forms
that energy takes

it is the feel of it
passing through our being
our bodily form

that we sometimes
separate out
and call emotion

the greatest love
the greatest rage
at the beginning

were one

energy
is the source
and sustenance
of life in form

if we try to contain love
to hold it tight
it does not die
we turn it
into something
other
