The Devil I Be

In a perfect world
I would not exist as me,
In a perfect world
I would be kind and loving,
You that invented my name.

    Forget the world, my brother. No one is better than the next...none of us is perfect....whether I steal a penny or someone else, a million $, we are thieves. Love and hugs to you, Annalise

    Ach nuuu, 'arry 'orsman! You have a greater knowledge to impart with me, about things I do not know about, so we can share as equals. Hey, I am an eternal child of sorts, green behind the soul like a Pan. *wink* :)

    Hullo, Harry. You must be busy(or.... 'something'!?). This tanka might have deeper philosophical implications than some people realize. Strong thoughts here. I have been pondering on this in my own way, for years now. We humans project a lot upon archetypes and meta-consciousness. All of the original ancient molds of Gods, Devils and Titans, were an early Humanist-Sociological-Philosophical reflection of our own possible emotions, thoughts, traits and actions....all of the possible interactions within a family.

    Harry; This is nice, but I can not see you as the Devil. Just be you and that is alright with me. Many blessings. Lucilla
