All That’s Placed Before Me Is Consumed

All That's Placed Before Is Consumed
All That’s Placed Before Is Consumed

Long has it been, the strife of contention
and the din of malcontent, echoing
within the chaos of fear,
the endless havoc of dissonance,
blinding truth to a dull blade,
and in tolerance of life’s hectic flow,
I have discovered stillness
and all that gives truth the pillars of foundation,
and that is silence.

Silence is the field on which truth is shown,
unencumbered by movement,
and in its pained starkness, the learning
that a soul requires to keep step
with knowing, the showing of self
and the realities of physical burdens,
and the lies we accept in maintaining them;
all this a revelation of magnitude,
the advantage of solitude, an epiphany.

In silence I have found control,
the clarity of myself and the clarity of circumstance,
given without distraction and in grace,
to face reality without prejudice,
and to realize truth for its importance,
not accept the delusions of others
or the illusions that support ego,
rather the clear cut entity of truth
at its core, connecting with my core.

In this state of freedom,
my knowing thrives like a shoot
beckoned to bloom in light,
and pieces fall where they may,
accepted as the flow of life, unburdened
by personal wants or ego’s striving,
rather the observer watching,
gleaning secrets and lessons offered,
in this playing field of undulations.

Happiness IS, this moment
all there is, and I cherish every one,
for the silence in my heart has won
the battles of the self and the world,
my part integral yet separate,
as I travail the path
and no matter the way,
I accept and in love request nothing,
for all that’s placed before me, is consumed.

    Very emotive and beautifully phrased piece, Tony. That old saying, “silence is golden”, is so true, for it is where we find our truths and where love abides.
