Lost in the Sea of Possibility

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Of all the worth I see in life,

so much is maligned in a single breath of doubt,

torn from seed in lethal dose,

to dust the promise of a billion stars.


And in that desecration bloats a belly filled,

with lost possibilities and defiled hope,

broken down and in bile despaired,

taken from the infinite.


From fear this dark and deadly ill,

takes power from our fantasy mind,

and we cling to our raft in uncertain seas,

overwhelmed by risk and the very nature of lucidity.


The darkest fear of all has no face, no image,

just the prospect of failure imminent,

rather than the revelation of a triumphant course,

and the self realization of potential.


No accomplishment was ever gained without the seeds of doubt cast aside,

and a faith instilled to risk all for the propagation of progress,

and we the core of our movement, decide with trepidation,

the course of our own lives.


Doubt may be a signal to awareness,

but when born of fear is the most destructive power on earth,

and we the power to overcome, stand tall,

and accept the journey known as life.


We are the master of our own destiny, so create it.
