• The Final Destination

    This is a poem about striving in which Teal explains where we are all really trying to get to... and how to go about getting there.

    Promise me now, 
    Promise me always

    Even as they strike you down with a myriad of hatred and violence, 
    Even as they dismember and destroy you that no man can ever be your enemy.

    The only thing worth anything is love; 
    Unconditional, invincible, limitless love.

    One day when you face this world 
    Unburdened by the tyranny of fear and hate and greed 
    Your fellow men will behold you.

    Across a thousand cycles of living and dying in full bloom 
    Your joy will become eternal.

    No sun or moon that ever rises, 
    will ever see it fade.
