Dot

Career is not life
Profession is not identity
Principles are not values
Thought is not contemplation

A smile is not joy
A tear is not sorrow
Pity is not compassion
Grief is not sympathy

Acquaintance is not friendship
Commitment is not captivity
A hobby is not a passion
A marriage is not love

Salacity is not yearning
Obsession is not romance
Atonement is not worship
Aggression is not puissance

A dot is not the point
A point is not the target
A target is not the goal
A goal is not the end.
