The Flow of My Expression

The Flow of My Expression
The Flow of My Expression

How have I survived myself,
in younger years
my temperament so explosive,
and then children tamed me,
I, seeking the need for patience
found balance,
and then when death touched my life
I fell hard,
to learn that life was not against me,
rather I was against life,
unable to see the point,
the movement and process I so held in blame,
until my soul whispered its refrain,
and I knew my petty human emotions
were not only wrong, but limiting,
and my soul knew more than it told me,
awaiting a path of chosen ascendancy,
and the transcendence of all physical being.

Since then, my struggle with physical life
has been replaced by spiritual growth,
a different perspective that allows life to ensue
without my judgement or blame,
instead seeing the mechanics of life,
the repetitive play of process
and the predilections of human ineptitude,
that so limits understanding
and the higher thoughts of selflessness,
kindness and above all, love,
the ideal that best describes our purpose in life,
the growth necessary to rise above
the petty concerns of physical life,
all of which is superficial
in the purpose of the soul and its learning,
and when we aspire to such ideals,
we begin to see the cause of all those disasters
we in the course of life, create.

I survive myself,
and do not lament the pain of my growing,
rather find peace in what I have found
in the core of me,
now the flow of my expression.
