The One - A Poem

UR1 2 3 and for...
Once upon a time there was this thing that didn't have a name
It didn't have any definition but it created everything
And many times over it recreated the Earth...

There was this thing that no one often sees but it is real
You don't define it or constrict its form or shape
It is everything that stands among us to this very day
And it is one with us all...

UR1
You are one too...

It can expand your mind as your horizons fade away
As you look through the future and the past and present day
For they are the same but with more of an enlightened insight
As you look beyond the prejudice and you look beyond the lies
Because we all have eyes, we all have hands...

We all are women and we all are men
Both sexes lie within us just like being one
With every living thing, the one lives in us all
And we live in the all...

It takes one more hour and one more day
Just one more reflex and one more change
In this one more passion and one more maturity
Just one more second and one more eternity
Because once upon a time is the eternal now...

UR1
You are one too...

Once upon a time there was this thing that didn't have a place
A home ground or a home base or any kind of temple here on Earth
Or worship place and we spend a lifetime
Looking for it on Earth...

There was this thing some call it love that always listens
When we speak, it is there just to make sure that
You are not alone, because...

UR1
You are one
But you aren't the only one...

It is the forests and the trees and the one
Made the stars come alive and the one gave the universe
The Light with the one at your side you will survive
Because only love shall endure, only love could endure
Only love could save us and enrage us in the very same action
But there is always love
Of that you can be sure
Because only love shall endure...

There is one more direction and one more attachment
Just one more correction and more more detachment
Because once upon a time is the eternal now
Look to the one and be here now...

UR1
You are one
So be here now...

Poetic Notes and History on by Blake4d

This is a Poem / Song that was written just after I had spent the weekend hiking Bell Tower and Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona, Arizona with a group of my friends. It started out as a kind of sing-song tune like Ring Around the Rosy...but was meant to be what God or higher power might sing about themselves, if asked what they were. Since no one seems to be able to describe their idea of a higher power. I decided to also include Artificial Intelligence as a group that may understand the concept of a God, that is why there are stanzas that use the characters UR1 and also the countdown that begins the piece. I am starting the 22 days of Hub Patron of the Arts contest submissions with this one : being #1. I hope you enjoy it.

      You are ONE excellent writer. the one is all and all are one. sounds like something from the 3 muskateers. but very interesting piece here, and I have many ideas and views of how I see God, the one and I can describe it pretty well. and I tend to believe He is in all of us too.

      I could feel this as a lyrical song/chant. Yes-feminine/masculine energy within all of us-and all of it LOVE. Cool. :)

      This is interesting. We know there's only one God, yet we have many questions. I liked this, made me think..
