More Whole Than Wanting

whole

What eludes a sentient mind
may in fact be unworthy,
ill-timed or detrimental in consequence,
the soul in keep of a secure vassal,
and as timing beats its own agenda,
and we, in frustration wonder,
tis our own complexity and subliminal knowing
that holds us in safe arms.

These workings are a wonder,
unconscious we may be, yet within us,
the movement of a life’s purpose,
much of which is covert in nature,
which gives rise to the thought
we are far more than a conscious mind,
a spark of life in an endless cosmos,
a profound yet fleeting glimmer of flame.

We, in all our perceived ineptitude,
are far more than superficial flesh,
far more than learned skills,
and the mirror reveals a haze
of inequities and possibilities,
not considered let alone explored,
and so we are a mystery unto ourselves,
a possibility unrealised.

We are all wanting, imperfect,
yet we have not laboured,
not found the limits of our potential,
instead focussed on all that fails, that pains,
that draws the darkness from within,
to wallow in the proclivities of stagnation,
escape reality in any way we can,
rather than grasp the beauty that can be.

Within is all we need,
the questions, the answers,
the power to choose to be whole,
to pursue potential and realise dreams,
for all is within, all resources, all opportunity,
the world is just a platform and we the actors,
the script our own to render,
and life of our own making.

    I believe as humans we are transparent in so many ways, vulnerable, timid, worried, excited about what lays beyond our mortal souls. The Universal clock ticks and our presence here is but a pittance in time. How we manage our souls whilst here is the key to salvation on the other side, don’t misunderstand me here, not a religious perspective of salvation, but the reincarnation if there is one of this our mortal souls. I like how you compare all humans to actors on the this worldly plane, yes indeed and we are all trying to get it right the first time, or could our lives be infinite? I was taken by this work, very well expressed Tony, much appreciated you sharing your side.

      Thanks Vincent, glad you appreciated it, I’m not religious either but firmly believe in the continuation of the soul, in whatever form. We all have much to learn, simply babes in eternity I guess. Take care.

    Tony, I’ve always been amazed at out smoothly the verse seems to pour out of you. It will be refreshing to have a venue where I can enjoy your work on a regular basis again.
