The Anomaly of Being

Updated on February 16, 2012

The Anomaly of Being

By Tony DeLorger© 2011


I touch, I feel, I explore the void of emptiness,

to discover what shell I am, what inequities I reveal.

I choose to be, acknowledge my need to be filled,

to aspire to existence beyond my flirtation with self.


How then am I to grow, when filling is the life of me?

the substance of my metamorphosis.

What am I then without experience,

without the log of minute to minute physical encumbrance?

Had I mind alone, would I then embrace life without knowledge,

without the senses, the awareness of being.

Would I be just a shell, a replicant being void of humanity?


Perhaps I am just experience without shell,

negated by my memories of awareness,

in fact, a store of learning that assumes order

and manipulates my knowing to suppose a personality.

Who am I that I can seek these anomalies?

Search for what is me, alone.


My primordial images beckon me to integrate,

to create an outpouring and to presuppose wholeness,

and assimilate what knowledge and awareness I have.

This perhaps will make me whole, tear away my persona

and invest me into humanity, a conscious and compliant being.


Perhaps I am neither vessel nor fill,

an abstract vision of life, an observer of God’s will.

If there is no-one there to hear me, know my words,

do I then exist at all?

      This is good; well done Tony! You have articulated here what a true philosopher would wonder, and in a great poetic fashion as well!
