Asserting Our Mark Upon Life

Asserting Our Mark on Life…

Asserting Our Mark on Life
Asserting Our Mark on Life…individual

A different perspective…

Victory is the hollow celebration
of an opponent’s loss,
the plight of contention meeting war,
when the only worth is bettering the self,
an aspiration of a higher more complete understanding
of potential and realization.

Competition rewards no just yield
that does not belittle the loser,
and in accepting betterment rightly
can only be of self alone,
and not by any comparison externally,
for that would compromise the appropriate path of any life.

Time administers what is needed,
but competing with anyone else,
countermands the purpose of ascension,
when souls are ready and minds willing to accept
a higher movement of learning,
and a higher expression of attainment ensues.

Comparison is a statement of sameness,
and in truth we are individual, completely,
so to develop an aspiration of sameness
is a most pointless and demeaning idea,
as we should develop our innate predilections
to assert our mark upon life, not become a replica of past.

    Thanks Jackie, I did notice that creating a sub-heading wasn’t accounted for. Thanks for that.

    I enjoyed thinking on this one, as we live in such a competitive society. So true Tony, there is no fullfillment in comparing and competing, and I like how you pointed out that competitive victory is really a celebration of belittling the loser. The true reward is in the journey of finding our own uniqueness, without compare. Excellent.

    Best,
    Mel

    I agree, Tony, we are each unique and trying to compare is demeaning to the self. It is no wonder that many children grow into adults with the “batitude” they need to best everyone. So much competition is forced on our youth during the school years. Great verse!

    Glad you agree Phyllis, and in the end we compete with ourselves, to become better and hopefully leave this earth better than when we found it. Cheers!
