Never Ending Surrendering

Even love must be released–
My human ideas of
Perfection and ever after
Even the good things
Hide the illusion of a
Reality that isn’t real

If I could bend the world
To my blind, little will
If that were even possible
Would it be enough?
I think not. It would simply
Reflect back to me the

Inadequacies of my mind
Then I would not only be
Disappointed,
But insulted by Creation!
Then what? Create more?
Luckily, life force has its limits!

No, as a Divine One* once said,
“The bad thorn is replaced by the good thorn,
Then we throw both thorns away.”
Release even the good thorn
To be the Wind as well as the Eagle
That flies upon it

Pretentious are these words
Written by a Soul having
Just surfaced for air after
Drowning in the waters of desire
But I know the Goal that has
Always been my goal

In spite of Lovely Reminders
Of lovely, lovely Love
I keep on surrendering
The prodigal child that I am
In fits and spurts and lethargy
And never ending surrender

  1. A lovely poem – beautiful language you used. 🙂 My favourite line: “My human ideas of / Perfection and ever after / Even the good things / Hide the illusion of a / Reality that isn’t real.” Definitely a ring of truth in them!

    • Thank you, Topaz. Those words also remind me of the line, “Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it.” I think I know what’s good, but I don’t. 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. Enjoy your day!
