I was amused by the imagery this piece evoked but the wisdom of this piece is spot on! Enjoy!
just being human
gives you the power
an ability, albeit unconsciously
are you even aware of this gift
influence affects you and others
see great characters emerging
personal development impacted
behaviors redirected maybe
it shapes policies
hoping attitudes will improve
for gained greatness within
with viewpoints in check
swaying lives that hang in the balance
hoping poor habits can change
their evolution impacted positively
helping find a way towards more caring
without us even knowing, not always for good
tread carefully with this power
who, why, how and what you affect
it could haunt you or lift your spirits
has always been questioned
ascertaining an understanding
is millennia+ old
the knowledge and wisdom
has always been grasped
but only by the ones who dare examine it
What began with a hellish entrance, should hopefully end with a tranquil release.
Early on, I didn’t know I aspired to be wise. Learning is one challenge that never ends. Lessons bombard us irrationally throughout the entirety of our reality.
I only hope my end game has seen just enough experiential, peaceful growth from comforting knowledge so my essence feels it is ready to go.
but a single layer
in the foundation
Every good deed
to the next generation.
Feeling and analyzing as the inchoate rises in my mind.
I’m leaning into what arrives.
Layering thoughts to complete some insight.
I’m crafting wisdom.
Nothing is random in expression.
I’m sharing what’s important.
Who does it touch?
I’m hoping it’s you.
