Assimilate! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

assimilate...
the act of wholeness;
that which you're fighting

is another part of yourself!
we use each other as mirrors
that reveal our darknesses...

yet we are no different,
there is no seperation!
one cannot breathe

without the other's breath...
one cannot be free
unless all are free!

there can be no healing
unless all are healed!
what we blame or put on others

is the part of ourselves
that we're afraid of!
greed, lust, hatreds, fears...

that cant be healed
until we recognize....
for the light to reach

across the cold and lonely night,
we all have to lift a torch....
we all have to leave the boxes

in which we hide!
