Shambhala Warrior- Sacred Leadership

No harm done
I'm just viewing 
from the shadow
without violence in my heart

But the eye
cuts deep 
to lacerated
of what it means to  
hold dear 
the sacred

Lost in confusion
shiny pictures
of postures
I look
with an empty gaze
at a transaction  
of violence
that I just can't

The desire pulses
in innocence
from the jaws
of hush hush business

Manifested perversions
grip with a toxicity
I die to every day  
There is love
in the reverence
but death in the execution
Talk to me men
about ways that harness  
the purity
That revere with sanctity
the beauty I withhold

Talk to me women
about ways to hold
the feeling
in ways that feel held

Bring the talk to the table  
where love is served best
Connection in connection
of deep and beautiful love
