The Problem of Abundance

So much information to consume;
So many directions and possibilities.

The exuberance lasts for a while,
But fades in the absence of mystery.
Exploring fruitless avenues is disheartening,
Only to be compounded by the totality of knowledge that both exists and is accessible.

How am I to ever chose a topic that is of both interest and relevance without slowing being dragged down into rabbit holes and quagmires of concepts?

I yearn to create;
To produce something that is new;
To intake information, digest it and synthesize something of substance — something of worth.

But how do I determine what is of worth without simultaneously needing to know about meaning, morality and how one ought to live?

For how can I navigate the myriad of information available to me without also needing to determine how that piece —despite how small it may be — fits together and manifests itself in the world?

Ceaseless Surrender

Defined by the here and back again;

It’s a relief that we’re still friends.

Tease me to stay,

But release me to go:

This is our incessant to and fro;

It is our beating against the stream

That ameliorates my desires to dream.

Freedom to look around

Without the rustlings of future sounds.

Time & You

Are you master of these years?

And I been thinking what’s like when you’ve been treated wrong.

It’s never seems to grow; is everything as you want of me?

If I could blame you, and if I could choose:

I would lay down beside you, and you’d my muse.

And if I could be anything,

I would be staring back at you my darling.

Help me to realize what it must be like.

Break me and realize, what I have left inside.

Embrace The Blessing

For what we are is very meek.
But it was you that turned each cheek.
Forgive me for I have not loved like you.
Forgive me I do not know the burden that I have cost you.
I do not deserve to witness love with such great intensity.
I am unworthy –
Yet blessed nonetheless.
You invite me to make a holy temple out of myself if I am unashamed:
I must be unafraid to speak your name.
