Masters in Waiting

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Our plight is set,

our direction expected,

yet we, the masters of illusion,

forge new worlds with every breath.

Our future is blank,

our imagination is bountiful,

yet we, the pilots of our lives,

refuse to take responsibility.

Our hearts are full,

our potential unlimited,

yet we, the doubters of life,

fear to surrender to love.

Our anger is great,

our judgements destructive,

yet we, the most imperfect beings,

cling to arrogance and hatred.

Our love is pure,

our forgiveness divine,

yet we, with the God seed within,

turn our backs on the righteous path.

Our time has come,

our opportunities waning,

yet we, in selfish thoughtlessness,

ignore the truth of our potential.

We can have everything...in the name of love.

      Sounds like a true fear of living, loving, and learning! Love is a beautiful thing - but one must first love themselves - and then be the Master's of their own destinies. True that, TonyDeLorger - my new friend! lol..(did you read my poem 'with friends like you..' and feel sorry for me? haha strangely - i'm ok with that! lol
