ONE THOUSAND WAYS TO BE WITHOUT BLEMISH
Humans are what we are within life’s sphere,
Striving towards flawlessness
For a variety of reasons.
Some horrified of the after life;
Some for a nifty reputation;
Some for a blameworthy conscience.
Our flesh treasures that which is pleasurable.
Not all pleasures are decorous;
Some might thwart you and your memories,
And make you keep running while no one,
But your burden chases.
Self masters can distinguish
Clean from unclean.
Believers are also taught
The consequences of being blemish,
And the horror by morrow,
Yet the stain keeps spreading like fire.
Love is a blender that blends the blemish, and brings full brims of perfection.
Love is the floor without a flaw,
The only way void of blemishes.
The other nine hundred and ninety nine
are more love.
