Holding On To Humanity

慈悲

 

I will not lose you

 

Not to the illusions

Painted on

This fleeting dream

 

By the misinformation

By the fake news

By the conspiracies

 

No – I cannot

Control the ignorance

And – no – I cannot

Overthrow the suffering

 

But I can focus on you

 

Infinite

Timeless

Forever present

In this eternal morgue

 

The fire will not burn

And the ashes cannot scatter

The perfect diamond of your heart

 

Unexcelled

Unequalled

 

Beyond the system of mind

Beyond the words and their code

 

I could never lose you
