should we discover any essential difference.

What good is death
if it cannot...

Human history is difficult;
hard pressed,
and rediscovering,
and reconnecting feelings
about therapeutic needs
and sacred wants
for peace

Through co-empathic singing passions

for Self AND Other

Like EgoTheistic re-ligion

indigenously multicultural
ecowomanist wisdom
