Live the Play

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


The lilting songs of joyous plight,

caress a quiet and accepting mind,

in the light of truth and an open heart,

perspective broad, sublime.



For it is in this state a gentle will,

can find a life worth living,

where heart's desire and circumstance,

meld into selfless giving.



When focus found, no contention bound,

the freedom flight of souls,

finding purpose in all that's sought,

in laughter, love untold.



In peaceful rest our minds invest,

in paths that deliver growth,

where souls attribute meaning,

to every step and oath.



Rewards in life comes not from result,

but in deed our journey begins,

each task and moment of considered life,

where hearts and love have been.



Blissful life lives not outside,

in this world, this play of hopes,

but within our hearts, our destiny,

to play out in all it's scope.

'....When focus found, no contention bound,

the freedom flight of souls,

finding purpose in all that's sought,

in laughter, love untold...'.....nice flow of so deep feelings....if only the purpose of free soul would have been so easy to depict. Your poem is awesome with some powerful message.
