The ABCs of zen

Abrasive, apparently accepted, accomplices.

Blinding belligerent beasts bounded by

Chaos. Caged, confined, conflicted,

Deliberately demanding depression.

Each emphasize emotion, each emotion

Forcibly felt. Forget false faith

Generous, gentle, genuine

Human, heed harboring hatred.

Instantly ignore ill ideals,

Jeopardize joylessness, join joyfulness.

Keep kindness, keep knowledge,

Leave limitations, leave loneliness.

Morph my malice memories, make my

Nervous nerves neutral. Nurture

Orphans of obsolete

Parenting. Prosecute preposterous philosophies

Quieting quintessential

Righteousness. Rather rallying rage, rally

Strength. Soulful strength. Stay

Thriving. Transform; transfigure.

Unhappy? Unfortunate? Unwanted?

Valuable. Virtuous. Vibrant. Victimized

Warrior, why waste


Youthful years yearning? You, yearn

Our world
