Do no harm

After all this time
It lies there
Hidden still
But awake
And alive
I cannot beat it
Cannot cut it off
Or starve it out
Given only a little hope
It springs to life
And takes control
Like a child
It must be guided
Taught to nourish
Encourged to expand
And in all things
Do no harm

  1. Fantastic poem! I love the rhythm in the lines (and, of course, I love what it says). The flow is wonderful. I love these lines:

    “I cannot beat it
    Cannot cut it off
    Or starve it out”.

    Yes. Do no harm. That is awesome.
