Not Alone

Post by koan »

A seance of holy ghosts

I call upon the divine

To make sense of all that is

And what is truly mine.

Possessions lose their cunning power

A clutter best to lose

But what of my mind, my heart, my soul

And the self I daily choose?

I don't believe that life is just

One big morality play

For when I'm good sometimes I fail

And when I'm bad, don't pay.

And if we're actors on a stage

Performing from the page

I don't believe the ending's writ

Or the author was a sage.

If a God looks over us

It may all be vain

But, just in case we're on our own,

I'll try to ease the pain.

It can not hurt to do my best

To help a soul in need

And everywhere there's fertile soil

I'll try to plant a seed.

What can I do, a single soul

With struggles of my own?

At least I share the knowledge

That we're not in this alone.

i really like this poem Koan, and expecially the concept that goodness does not always mean rewards. and the concept of the power of possessions .

There is much going on in this poem. It's about your life & how you feel, Koan. You are a strong person with a mind that covers many areas of spirituality. (don't ask me what that means.Knowing you this just comes out. You have a talent that allows you to release your emotions. You GO GIRL.
Everyone has these on their face? TULIPS.
