Keep Love In Your Heart

Take the test you’re given.

Sit and listen
do not use the protection
of indignation
especially
if you’re right.

Sit and listen
recognize your horror
and do not move
do not react
but keep love
in your heart.

Recognize your horror
and keep love in your
heart.

Recognize your horror
is only a figment
of your fear
and dissapears
in the sunlight of
yourself.

Keep love in your heart
or at least do not allow
hate.

Take the test your given.

See what you’ve built
destroyed
see those you love
punished
out of fear and revenge
and keep love
in your heart.

Recognize your hate
and feel your
desire for it
for it’s warmth
and surety
and cammaraderie

and keep love in your heart.

Put your head down,
when you want to hold it high.
Say yes,
when you want to say no.
Caress,
when you want to punch.

Keep love in your heart.

Have no idea
how to act
what to do
what to say
where to hide
how to love
how to be gentle
how to listen
how to grow

Have no idea

and keep love in your heart.
