Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Living Beyond Yourself

Posted Wednesday, January 04, 2012

There is a mystery
A wondering

We all experience it
If we are truly honest with ourselves

We wonder
About how to live

How to live our dreams and
How to find care

How to live our truth and
How to be understood at our core

How to be ourselves and
How to meet our deepest longings

How to experience adventure and
How to experience companionship

How to live a life of deep meaning and 
How to get connection

How to make an impact on the world and
How to experience relationships

How to be creative and
How to be truly known

How to live our art and 
How to be held

How to live beyond ourselves and
How to be loved without condition

There is a mystery
A wondering

And for me
There is a commitment
To both
