Gods That We Never Became: a Poem

Updated on July 30, 2017

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

Man's potential keeps intriguing me

how little of it all of us are using

not thinking of all that we could be

making our purpose so confusing.

This man is a secret powerhouse

but reduced to a battery-run toy

with willpower voltage of a tiny mouse

knowing but imitations of a true joy.

Man being a dynamo of a strong intent

capable of some miraculous feats

but all that he does is whine and vent

when his abused brain overheats.

Yes, we are mini-gods in our heart

with a vitality that knows no border

but seemingly not really smart

to keep our world in a decent order.

Man is so many other things

that put him on a pedestal high above

but slow at following what he preaches and sings

that very first thing---how to love.

      So true. Nice poetry.

      The urge of mind is to take over and the urge of heart is to win over.
