he jumped in front of

the speeding car

and saved the little kid –

~

“you are a superhero”

said the kid.

“yes”, he replied:

~

to hate one self is

a super power

that comes with great responsibility.

~

you hone this power in secrecy and

solitude and the magic of its working

is kept even from your own self.

~

but like all beautiful things

it is incomplete in the

ones who suffer –

~

for the ones with perfect hatred

make peace with

their non-existence

~

and us who remain, are

left collecting trinkets and

building sand castles

~

for the lifetime of one wave.

Practice, practice, practice

makes perfect it is said

~

and you carry on perfecting

the design for your grand

castle in rock and clay, forgetting

~

you are stranded on an island

with nothing but

sand and time

~

passing beyond the

grasp of your

mind and fingers.
