Advice

The maxims sound as mantras,
in robes of seeming truth,
the spiritual advice resounds;
step back from what’s not good.
If someone causes suffering,
if someone causes pain,
if it makes you unhappy,
retreat and separate.
But can we really do this?
Does wisdom drive this act?
Or has our path been written?
There is no turning back.
When people are important,
when bonds are old and strong,
can we reject to suit ourselves,
escape from soul’s demands?
Sometimes it’s just not possible,
to leave such pain behind,
to walk away from those we love;
to close our heart and mind.
It is in times of grief and hurt,
that Love asks to be called,
to weave protective robes around;
to hold us to the cause.
