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.
