Harry was well outside the ‘norm’
so different that he didn’t try to conform
he stretched all limitations.

Found his tormentors arose from his imagination,
mere reflections of his own fear and hate
only conquered by being compassionate.

With support of like-minded friends
He found the strength to send
Those tormentors to their end …

A demonstration that conforming can distort
As compromise can limit our potential!

Clarifies that we can confront our fears and failings
With the support of genuine friends

That ‘enemies’ are our own invention.
Loving kindness the best solution.

With effort and patience we can transcend
Our disturbing moods and emotions,
Allowing peace and calm to descend.

So why limit your potential?
Wrong friends drain our life force!
Anger and greed make us ugly inside and out
Fears and worries a useless waste of energy.

If Harry could conquer his foes
We can surely confront our woes?
Beat those emotional lows
and ensure that your real potential grows.
