Each Step

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Steps, each single one, take us closer to what will be,

whether in truth or in denial, we face future,

movement always, the clock ticking,

our vision the unfolding of life in time.


What we see, colour, texture and perspective,

blends endlessly into the manifestation of reality,

each piece of a life, responding and actioning will,

to empower the experience of cognizant existence.


Thoughts melding, vision discerning, minds accepting,

the moments of life, the smiles, tears and pain of sensory perceptions,

gathering, filing, decoding and accessing life,

into a vast and intricate experience.


Each step bring us closer to understanding,

the hapless movements of ego and self-importance,

elevated by primal needs and the drive of belonging,

to accept who we are despite what we know.


Life is a myriad of complexity governed by simplicity,

as complex as a microcosm and as singular as a truth,

ever unfolding to be viewed naked in the light,

always embracing the power of love in connection.


Each step we take is a gift and a revelation,

giving us all the opportunity of sight,

beyond the eyes of man, the expected parameters of mind,

and the miracle of possibility, manifest.

Beautiful poem, I agree with you on "Life is a myriad of complexity governed by simplicity," many times I have made my life more complicated that it needed to be. Thanks for sharing your wonderful poetry.
