all of this

love
what you hate
love
what you fear,
love
your enemy
and heaven comes
near

love
what exhausts you
love
what distracts you,
love
the unlovable
and heaven comes true

love
your instructor
love
your commander,
love
the rules
heaven’s all the grander

love
your slanderers
love
your pests,
love
your self –
heaven’s wherever
you rest

love what makes you
unlovable
love what makes you
irritable
love what makes you
irrational
love and you can
let go

all of this can be
let go
