Whatever your thoughts of the oppressor,
do not let the angry flame of hate
consume your heart.
It is not one that illuminates darkness,
but one that burns away what remains of goodness.
Do not resonate with the worst part of them,
when what we need now is the best part of you.
Stay true to the path of peace –
if you cannot find it in your external reality,
it is an opportunity to create it within your internal reality.
Find alignment with your breath,
and bring awareness to that part of yourself
– your soul,
that is at peace
no matter the chaos around you.
