Analysis of Christianity v Buddhism

Analysis of Christianity v Buddhism

My analysis of the compatibility/incompatibility of Christianity and Buddhism. If you feel you are going to take offense, please just don’t even read it.

Away and Apart

Away and Apart

by Daniel Young

Sitting down, face to face

there is no bandaid, there is no brace.

I am 1,800 miles from home, staring at you through a screen.

Missing you with an aching pain.

Like a foggy window, made of plexiglass,

Poetry http://wp.me/s2cTVN-poetry

Poetry is like water.

You can’t live without it.

Out in the desert you know how precious it is.

Such thirst sits in your rock-hard throat.

Mining your soul with a pickaxe.

Half cut vision searches aimlessly for an unknown hope.

Clenched fists’ clutch could render dust from brick.

Smother struggle like deep under water.

Lose grip like sand through an unclasped hand:

Each grain, a memory which painfully sticks in our clothes…
