Cruelty and kindness

April 17, 2016 life

Our universe
is not cruel,
and neither
is it kind.

It simply IS,
a container
for everything,
matter and mind,
energy and spirit.

It is WE
who think and feel
who create cruelty
and kindness,
needless suffering,
and compassion.

It is always our choice,
our burden,
our gift,
seen or unseen,
to do so.
