I am a Temple

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


I am a temple,

of flesh, of mind and soul,

and in my consciousness,

I seek to be whole.

That sacred spark,

the core of me,

expressed through will,

for the blind to see.

I am a shell,

with precious gifts,

a potential born,

to inspire and uplift.

I carry doubts,

and questions lost,

seeking truth,

whatever the cost.

I am a purpose,

a loving heart,

instilled in light,

right from the start.

I am blessed,

with the gift of sight,

the compassion to feel,

and the will to right.

I have the choice,

to accept or deny,

to live for right,

or live a lie.

I am profound,

and yet weak,

lost in the self,

and often meek.

I have the power,

to change the world,

a mind to realise,

and a heart to know.

I am a temple,

a sacred life,

afforded reason,

to choose right.

All we ever have is potential, nothing more,

and all we can do is to realise it.
