The Giving Life?

I bubble and boil
and cause turmoil.
Thickening hardening
as I churn
I cause pain,
Oh! I burn.
Bringing chaos,
causing gloom…
a sense of only doom.
Yes I am this
but also that;
the one who alone
for a fact,
is the salve
to soothe and calm.
Protect, nurture,
save from harm.
You see
only the strife
but am I not
the giving Life?

    Tree of knowledge or the tree of life, we have the choice to choose which branch.

      All that you say makes sense but for some it takes time to make a choice.

        True, time is a component. But at least the choice is our own….the wonder of free will.
