For Paul

Today my brother would have been 51.

When he died on November 25, 2002 I began to search.

Why?

Why everything?

and

Isn’t there more? More better? More happy?

After awhile

I began to understand the teachings of the Buddha.

Most implicitly that

I am.

Nothing more

Ok, maybe a little more

I know

every day

I want to be kind.

But some days

I’m not.

And I understand

that is what

I am.
