You are Me

Home / Poetry / You are Me

You are me and I am you.
It is obvious that we are inter-are.
You cultivate the flower in
yourself so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself so
that you do not have to suffer.
I support you you support me.
I am here to bring you peace
you are here to bring me joy.

Thích Nhất Hạnh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk and peace activist. Books by Thich Naht Hahn can be found on Amazon.
