The Soul Demands

Peace, one and all…

Following the way is easy
when life goes your way,
but the journey is long
and ease no test of resolve.

Reality is a blood red ruby
and not some cheap trinket
to be purchased
by part-time endeavour.

No my soul,
the way demands more from you
than such paltry investment,
so strive hard against yourself.

Be merciful.
Be loving.
Become human.
What other way exists?
