A Single Bird

A Single Bird
A Single Bird

Through time itself a lone bird flies,
storms abound and winds awry,
but clouds alone cannot deprive
a seeking mind of truth,
and struggle he, amid the storm,
time relent and heart forlorn,
but on into this timeless place
a single bird to know its place.

This simple poem brings up a point about our life’s journey. What guides us most on this exceptional journey through life is simply wanting to know why, to give some meaning to all the struggle, the heartache and suffering both physically and mentally, we endure during our time on earth. There is a great saying...’The meaning of life is finding a meaning in life.’

When we can do that then the question of why becomes moot. Does it really matter that we must endure pain as well as experience joy, be heartbroken in order to appreciate falling in love and to know failure so intimately so we may understand victory at its essence?

Time is our heartbeat, so many beats and our time is done. What is timeless is our heart’s experience: love, joy, ecstasy, serenity, peace, comfort and bliss. Time matters not amid these experiences, in fact it ceases to exist.

Follow your heart, follow only your own dreams and be who you are, regardless of anyone else’s viewpoint. We are each perfection in our own way, exactly who we are supposed to be, and as we learn we perfect who we are even more and become even more unique as a soul.

    Thanks Rasma, glad you enjoyed it and agree. The heart is really a reflection of the soul and if we really listen, we can always make the right decisions. Take care.
