Fighting our projections

"You're not the boss of me,"
we say, or
"Who died and made YOU king?"
-- but really those we rail against
got all their power from us.
In fighting our own dark sides --
a fight the church approved --
we toss them up against the wall
and when they stick
we challenge them to a duel.

Step up, my friend,
and claim your truth;
this battle is your own,
this enemy your own, as well,
and in befriending him
you come to love yourself anew
and taking back that venom
you convert it into peace:
peace within, and peace without --
with your assistance, peace is everywhere.
