Does the spider curse the wind,

For the destruction of its web?

Does the wind hate the trees,

For causing it to ebb?


Why do people hate,

Who they do not know?

All because a stranger,

Told a tale of woe.


The spider will rebuild,

It happens every day.

The wind will blow again,

The trees will always sway.


People will be people,

No matter what you do.

One day perhaps I hope,

Love will see us through.

    Ah dear lady, the beauty of that understanding is in seeing our fears first, and in doing so become that compassion in realising why we had cursed with those judgements for so long ❤️ 🙏🏽
    A very beautiful post kind lady, may we see that wisdom 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

        We are dear lady, but first the blindfold of fear so we will understand when our hearts are finally opened. It is like starvation, we will never understand unless we have been starved. So that when we finally have an apple in our hands it suddenly becomes a feast, we will appreciate it beyond words.
        So too fear. In feeling it holding our hearts shut for so long, we will be in heaven the day we look within, understand it, and finally let it go. In that moment we are finally loving ourselves, no longer bound by the fears belief of ourselves.
        But it won’t be the momentary feeling of starvation or a million other things, this will be a lifetime of holding a weight finally removed, and a touch within so beautiful to be beyond a feast but a banquette of love so profound to be beyond words. And suddenly we will see our truth, that the journey we just made must be done or we will never understand conditional love, so that we may understand that apple in our eye of unconditional love, that love and happiness we have always sought 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    Pam this is beautiful. Yesterday I posed the question to others, “Why are people so hateful?” After years in the “service” industry I questioned why I decided to jump back in to another one. Twice yesterday I was yelled at….YELLED? Seriously? And if I told you the reasons you would shake your head. I’m working as a workkamper at a campgroud/resort~we aren’t doing brain or heart surgery here. The uncertainty of life is causing some crazy behavior. Silently I sit here this morning, sip sip, and happily read your poem. Thank you for the encouragement! ❣

      I am so pleased I was able to help KL! I think people have defaulted to a panic mode. More and more people are dropping off the deep end with her emotions. I hope this is not our new normal.
