The Resolve of a Loving Heart

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Often indifferent to a world speeding by,

I bury myself in what matters,

within the arms of a loving life,

surrounded by my soul family.

The harshness of uncompassionate beings,

hover around my life

like circling vultures,

ready to strike at the slightest fault.

I see them everywhere,

studying, conspiring

to undo my resolve,

to unhinge my loving heart.

They are my reminder of possibility,

the choices we make and the consequences,

ever-evolving our paths in life.

How they must see me,

perhaps weak, perhaps androgynous,

without the blinkered view of gender,

the biases burdened by ignorance.

But here I am,

alive with thoughts,

oppressed, entrapped,

but completely free,

in the knowledge of what freedom is.

The world may be what it is,

but within my world,

I can only find peace

and the contentment of compassionate love.

In my world, all resides in possibility,

in aspiration of beauty,

and all that is without shackles,

and the encumbrance of misguided minds.
