No Bounds

By Tony DeLorger © 2012



Forging ahead, through the boundaries of our minds,

creates a vivid and expansive future,

attuned to the silken whispers of imagination,

the very metamorphosis of possibility.



When we venture beyond fear, we transform,

verge on the unfathomable, the gentle notions of whim,

where within our hands emerges the beginnings of form,

the unfolding of free thought and the melding of mind and circumstance.



What then is envisaged can be realised,

beyond the walls of our limitations,

those constructed by our own hands in defense of anxiety,

and the concerns of a fearful mind.



There are no bounds in life just inaction to procure our wants,

to grasp with all our being what calls to us in dreams,

what beckons us to disregard what is expected and follow our hearts,

in defining our life experience.



There is no denial, just struggle in this vast and open plane of existence,

and what we then determine so leads us to ends,

whether out of fear or desire, the choice is ours,

regardless of how it is seen by others.



Life is layers of choice, all of which determine outcomes,

with or without our cognisance,

with or without our true wishes.

and within our understanding of the processes that guide us.


Impossibility is simply the denial of life,

forever miraculous in its very nature,

and ever revealing to us the infinite possibilities,

that we, even in our infancy, can utilise.

"Impossibility is simply the denial of life"... I like that. I always have a new perspective of life from reading your works. I'm pleased with it and I hope you NEVER stop growing as a writer. It's your work that makes me strive for better. That, sir, is a major compliment. :) Hope to see you around the hubs!

@Tony DeLorger...Your words speak peaceful thoughts that nonetheless rev the imagination to gain greater heights within our own worlds. "No Bounds" is an inspiration.

As usual, Tony, I am deeply moved and taken to a lovely place in my mind when I read your poetry. The last verse is a profound statement of the possibilities one can obtain in life. Well done.
