A Beautiful Poem – Do Not Love Half Lovers- by Khalil Gibran

A Beautiful Poem- Do Not Love Half Lovers- by Khalil Gibran

Here is a beautiful  poem to help you start your week in a gentle manner, as  we draw closer to the Easter break- hope it is a break for you. May the warmer spring weather reflect the warmth in your heart, and that of others around you.
Wishing you a new week, and a new season of heart opening, in which you can live more authentically, and live from the heart.
The theme of this poem is life, love, courage, authenticity, and whatever resonates with you...

Do not love half lovers

Do not love half lovers
Do not entertain half  friends
Do not indulge in work of the half talented
Do not live half a life,  and do not die a half death
If you choose silence, then be silent
When you speak, do so until you’re finished
And do not silence yourself to say something
And do not speak to be silent
If you accept, then express it bluntly
Do not  mask it
If you refuse then be clear about it, for an ambiguous refusal is but a weak acceptance
Do not accept half a solution
Do not believe half truths
Do not dream half a dream
Do not fantasise about half hopes
Half  a drink will not quench your thirst
Half  a meal will not satiate your hunger
Half the way will not get you nowhere
Half an idea will bear you no results
Your other half is not the one you love
It  is you in another time yet in the same space
It is you when you are not
Half a life is a life you didn’t live
A word you haven’t said
A smile  you postponed
A love  you have not had
A friend you didn’t know
To reach and to not arrive
Work and not work
Attend, only  to be absent
What makes you stranger to them closest to you
And they are strangers to you
The half is a mere moment of inability
But you  are able, for you are not half a being
You are a whole that exist to live life
Not half a life
Khalil Gibran
