Untitled poem

We lurch from paucity to plenty;
from ahimsa to inhumane;
great charity to brutality;
our world – so full of strife and pain
swings, in wide and outspread arc
and yet its balance can maintain
and not stumble in time or space.
Our world, so full of strife and pain,
its wonder and its vast potential
to nurture, delight and sustain,
makes enlightenment essential.
The world, so full of strife and pain,
needs us all, with hearts wide open,
to set the stamp on our domain;
to teach, protect, encourage, pardon
and free it from the strife, the pain.
