As I stand here in my slim chestnut frame,
I question the ways of our world.
I mean, cause none of us really know why we’re here,
We’re just running around in circles confused by other peoples interpretations of ourselves.
We get caught in this trap of trying to impress,
And by doing this we lose control.
We forget what to love and who to give our love too.
So we keep running and running as the circles get bigger and bigger.
Until one day we stop and realize that all that we thought we knew will never be enough.
We seek an enlightened self, even if unconsciously, the journey is never ending.
There is no ‘life’ destination but so many of us think that we’ve made it.
We have ‘overcome’ because of our ‘understanding’.
Oh, how we contradict and play hypocrite!
Because how does one ‘stand under’ knowledge gained?
Now there’s a revelation.
When we are aware of who and where we are, and how little we know, we become more aware of others.
We can accept ourselves with less judgement of our own and the experiences of others.
We accept that which we can not change, and with ‘overstanding’ we begin to change how we respond to the actions of others.
Maybe this is a solution?
From this foundation I believe we can collectively achieve, a humane livelihood for humanity.
Would you agree?
