Beyond Me, Yet Mine

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


I am driven to know,

what lurks behind perceivable truth,

what incomprehensible reality withholds,

so that I may be blessed with its understanding.


So vast the scope of a human mind,

yet so limited with the walls of reason,

and I, willing to push beyond,

cling to the hope of a cosmic path.


In the stillness of tranquility I seek answers,

through an open door I fashion,

entreating that flow of perception and knowledge,

so I may walk within a selfless truth.


Life beyond me beckons this connection,

and I, fearless, seek it knowing,

the majesty of plans far from my cognizance,

is surely like the warmth of a star becoming.


My life is a but a spark,

alive then snuffed, hardly notice within infinite life,

yet my moments can endure, attached to distant truths,

evolving thought and touching hearts.


From where this light comes I know not,

but I shall follow it the days of my life,

and hold fast my hopes of knowing,

what lies beyond me, that is mine.



We are but stardust, particles from the beginning of time, with all memory and knowledge of all that has been and will be. What we have in life is so fleeting, find meaning and make it worthwhile.
