Once I wandered all alone
In deepest darkness stumbling.
Frightened, lost, and angry,
Grasping for a light.

Discouraged and so tired
I quietly let go.
Twas then a small faint glow
Appeared in the distance.

Brightening, it grew nearer,
And in the center sat
A smiling Buddha figure.
His arms were open wide.

"Compassion, my child
Is the first to learn",
He whispered in my ear.
"Wisdom and love will follow."

Surrounded by a sudden warmth,
The darkness became light.
Filled by peace and love,
I opened up my mind.

Thus began my journey
of wisdom and the truth.
Compassion,love, and peace
Are my lamp along the way.

Compassion! What a poorly-kept secret yet so many choose to ignore it!

Your commitment to clarity is inviolate, Mom

May you stick to this goal and remember this "lamp".
Compassion and love through peace is critical.
Obviously, supporting those who have the opposite goal would be contrqadictory to this goal.
