your blood will certainly flow from my veins.
When you are starving,
your bloated belly is gnawing into my flesh.
The laughter in your eyes
Can you see yours in mine?

I do not see my face reflected in
dust, mountains, other people's faces
or the Cosmos.
I wish i did.
My eyes do light up when others smile,
which helps me know the rest if this
is more than pleasant palp.
But i don't feel it.
Would'nt it be wonderful to know
that hunger any where
would immediately give those well fed
Right now, if i were to strike someone,
i might feel little pain
unless he turned and beat the crap out of me.
But i continue to change.
and may someday become
what i once was,
a child of stillness and emptiness
One with the one
and compassionate toward all its appearances..
