Art work: Kelly Hartland 2009

The man

fearing his own heart

and tormented by the whispers there-in

became belligerent towards himself, then – others.

Eventually, perceiving treason within,

he murdered his own conscience.

~ Kelly Hartland

Contradiction #8

Other people are not a source of peace or happiness;

but something deeper –

an experience of ourselves.

Yet, without other people,

we may not experience peace or happiness.

~ Kelly Hartland

Contradiction #4

To attain happiness,

we must first risk becoming miserable.

~ Kelly Hartland

Contradiction #2

In order to clean anything up –

you must first make a bigger mess of it.

~ Kelly Hartland

Compass with no needle

Abuse does to its victim

what a compass with no needle

does to a navigator.
