Good & Evil

Good & Evil

written by: Maggie O’Brien

Evil is nothing.
But the ego’s shadow
Dependant on the Light.
A nothingness,
Of absent Love
Devouring all
that’s true and right.
Love seeks harmony
Seeks to enhance
Plays the Music of the Spheres
Centred in the Dance.
Cannot attribute hurt or pain
Lives not for profit or to gain
from others’
And so, we Lovers
We can see it
Spot its kind
It comes as no surprise
For, at length
Love is not blind
The heart has eyes
Therein, our strength
