Never back up or back away

Spirit tells me to

Never back up or back away

From those I care for, when

Their truth differs from my own, and

They seem to use anger as an argument

To defend it.

 

Spirit suggests that I practice

Stepping aside; a martial arts move

That allows one’ opponent

To advance without

Direct confrontation.

 

This would allow me, He tells me,

To witness their anger from

A safer perspective.

 

Anger is not an argument, but

Is sometimes used as

An alternative to one.

 

To step aside, in awareness,

Understanding and compassion,

While remaining at peace

With your own truth, and

Wishing peace of mind,

For the other.
