"Fully Human"


To Understand people
Must try to Understand what they are Not saying,
Perhaps what they will Never be 
able to Say...


ICosts 
so  Much to be a  Full  Human Being
that there are very Few
who  Have the Enlightenment
or the Courage,
to Pay the Price...
One has to Abandon altogether
the Search for Security,
and  Reach Out
to the Risk of Living
with
Both Arms.
One has to Embrace the World 
like a Lover.
One has to Accept Pain
as a Condition of Existence.
One has to Court
Doubt and Darkness 
as the
Cost of Knowing.
One Needs  a Will Stubborn in Conflict,
but  Apt  always to Total Acceptance
of  Every Consequence
of
Living
and
Dying.
