The essence of Life - A poem by Richard Mawby
The essence of life; it is a mysterious, intangible field of intrigue that has captured the imagination and the hearts of many.
What is life? How can you describe the magic that surrounds us daily?
The very essence of life fuels the heart of the world and without it our reality would exist no more. Yet every day, humanity seeks to destroy nature and all its beauty little by little, thus impacting upon the heart of this earth; resulting in the decline of the very essence of which our souls were born.
I believe that life itself falls hand in hand with nature and through this relationship one can connect with the magic and realise what they have been missing. Below is a poem of pure inspiration; enjoy and cherish these words as much as I.
The essence of Life
How can one describe this presence?
Its humble hold and magical essence
Invisible, unscented, none can see
As it envelopes both you and me
And flows upon the gentle breeze
As well as through the veins of these
Of trees and creatures great and small
All vessels abiding by life’s long call
While there are humans who ignore
How can we dismiss and find it a bore?
The beauty once thrived of nature and bliss
Why did we destroy our paradise’s kiss?
Though there are few of us who know
Leaders who can find and show
What we have been missing centuries long
But come has the age of awakening’s song
Look towards our distant pasts
To acknowledge our wisdom through ages it lasts
Carried by souls of infinite time
Emerging each lifetime through vessels like mine
And thus the age shall one day arise
All is not lost as you gaze at the skies
Close your eyes and open your senses
Feast upon life through intangible lenses
We are all one united through essence
The roots of nature, they bind us together
A consciousness beyond all that you know
Where the essence of life, forever it shall flow;
