POEMS: Is it possible? by Anthony de Mello

Is it possible?

Is it possible for the rose to say, 

“I will give my fragrance to the good people who smell me, 

but I will withhold it from the bad?” 

Or is it possible for the lamp to say, 

“I will give my light to the good people in this room,

 but I will withhold it from the evil people”? 

Or can a tree say, 

“I’ll give my shade to the good people who rest under me,

 but I will withhold it from the bad”? 

.

These are images of what love is about.
