Habit of Love

 

Majid Ali, M.D.

Being Human With a Habit of Love.


One can walk a path of human-ness only with a habit of love. I say so because I know human nature is essentially addictive.


We humans are slaves of our words. The choice is between:

words of love

or

words of anger and hate.


 

Here is a short poem from my poetry book entitled Drone Democracy

Thursday

 Love is to celebrate,

A crystal without creed,

A dew drop without color,

A raven without race.

A flower without faith,

A river without religion.


Love is to be,

A Muslim on Fridays,

A Jew on Saturdays,

A Christian on Sundays,

A Hindu on Mondays,

A Buddhist on Tuesdays.

An agnostic on Wednesdays,

A nobody on Thursdays.

What day,

Makes my day?

Might it be a Thursday?

A day to be a nobody.


 Thursday,

A day for,

The language of silence,

The commerce of compassion.

A day to live,

A day to love,

A day to be true,

Giddy on life,

A day to be a nobody.


 Thursday,

A day for,

For trancing in every shrine,

Far, far,

From the mind of the malign,

Softly, sublimating,

Into the heart of the Divine.

A day for love,

A love,

That only soul can refine.

On the way to be a nobody.
