Freedom lived

Freedom lived
is leaving yourself
the option to love
the one who injures you
if love arises

Why take that
off the table
Freedom lived
does not deny you

Freedom lived
is free of the strategy
to plot hatred
against those who hate
even subtly

Freedom lived
does not deny hatred
If it arises
it is allowed
with unflinching love

It is the space
between the leaves
of a tree dancing
with the wind
Stillness within dance
