Awaiting Discovery Within

Make a mistake.
Go outside with your rake,
Take take take;
It’s time again to placate

Listen to the breeze and let yourself believe that the rustling leaves whisper to you. Allow yourself this one break.

Reason says otherwise, and I surmise that it’s choices which have me temporarily paralyzed. Forget to realize that the leaves aren’t alive?

Atop the fragments float, tethered to nothing – we drift further apart. Do you remember the start? Remember thinking I was so smart? All that’s left now are frozen embers some might call art.

Where does it all go And who really knows? Do the islands that time split apart ever mend back into a continent again?

If the answer is no, would it not be better to pretend?

Defend against the horizon for it brings darkness and takes away our days; Pretend with the sunrise that our spirits will be raised.

Deafen oneself from the beating drum from the ceaseless march of time. Better to say that we are fine than to waste anyone else’s time.

Striving to Ascend

Upwards we strive, sweeping blunders aside.

Inside hosts the rings that demarcate time.

Nothing but bands of lines.

Roots cling to the ground.

Anchoring the emerging sprouts until they can finally stand.

The moving winds serve a disruptor to nature’s plan.

Aspiring for ascension to the sky sustains the plant’s continual drive to climb.

Embracing an Escape?

To forget and become blind, becoming lost in the minutiae of time.

Let us look back, once more, and rewind – but what for?

What is it we hope to find this time, a transformational revelation?

An insight that transcends the temporal and guides, like the North Star, but in the realm of the eternal – were ever such a flash of clarity to strike across our soul, would the onus not still be on us to transform our lives?

Does the guiding direction of a compass eliminate the arduousness of the journey?

Is it not still our bones, muscles, sinews, and resolve that must work in coordination with principles above to propel us toward its designated destination?
