Reinventing the Wheel: 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.

Using those same models of ancestral living

we keep ourselves busy reinventing the wheel

just becoming masters at self-deceiving

for day-after-day life is an identical deal.

Toys being different but players don't change

we love and we hate and we get bored the same

nothing about us has ever been strange

it's all the same crap, all familiar game.

We are thinking thoughts of the last year

and they just fall heavier on our pride

with all New Year's resolutions being still there

buried in the past although never died.

So we see new movies and wear new shoes

but other than those toys we bring in nothing more

stuck in inertia which makes us refuse

to reinvent ourselves, our truth, our core.

Could we wake up different and willing to outgrow

that yesteryear's self and its way of being

and reinvent life by redirecting its flow

to see a different reality than we have been seeing.
