Poetry: Torn

A foot in this world, another else where, polarities pull.
From a time without an ending, like a dream, I am suddenly alive.
Traveling through the murkiness of my reality, I loose my true self.
Years and years, a child, a teenager, a young man, a grown adult, navigating; the blind leading the blind.

Undoubtedly searching, a light outside to my inside, only to further sink in the quicksands of darkness.

When things no longer can get darker than any darkness, a light flickers.
Only descending will allow me to ascend.

The slip to regain balance, I stumble for alignment.
How true is light if it is not seen from my own consciousness?
The echoes of eternity beating in my own heart.

Cultivating in the warmth of my own light, I am pure and strong.
The sands of time are no more, only a budding flower in my sun.
Watching conversations of my ego to my heart, they struggle needlessly.
A coin of two sides not knowing they are one.
Outside of polarities, my feet firmly and sturdy, I am my true self, without any bounds.

  1. It seems like I’m around this part of your poem in my own life right now and so are some friends and about 495840482001 others on earth- “Undoubtedly searching, a light outside to my inside, only to further sink in the quicksands of darkness.”

    Waiting to see the rest of the poem open in my own world!!! Nonetheless, it all gives a better sense of seeing light since it’s coming from someone I know apposed to the distant Yahoo Answers or Google, haha!!!!!!!

    1. I’m glad you’re enjoying these poems. These are indeed times where believing and knowing our light is within us. I think you’re getting closer to realizing that.
