Where I Am

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


I often lament the choices I’ve made,

yet they bring me to here.

I often celebrate my conquests,

yet they bring me pain,

and then lead me to here.

I often drown in sorrow,

wallow in self-pity and denial,

yet it all brings me to here.

I can soar like a bird released,

an embodiment of freedom and righteous mirth,

and still it brings me to here.

I am but a reflection of my experience,

and yet I am here, here as I am.

I wonder if my reflection changes,

am I the same,

will I still be here, or somewhere else.

Do I choose to be here,

regardless of my experience,

what I do to myself the causation

or result of my actions.

Am I the same, regardless of pain, of success or love,

or am I an endlessly evolving primordial swill,

clawing to become something of worth within an infinite existence.

Where am I, if not on a fast-moving train,

feet careless to touch the ground,

the world haplessly enacting its course,

with me at its central observation point.

Am I evolving or am I reflecting experience,

for all to judge and personify.

All I know is that I am here,

and despite my cranial determinations,

I remain here, regardless.

For by whose design, is irrelavent,

I am where I am because of who I am.

I am me, and nothing less.

      One of your best, Tony. I always look forward to your new works. They never fail to somehow perfectly grasp my own complex views of myself and the world in such an elegant, flawless way. Very well written.

      Hi raciniwa. I've always been an inquisitive soul and have studied and continue to study many ideologies about human nature, psychology and philosophy, plus have worked as a psychic medium, worked as a clinical hypnotherapist and studied numerology and reflexology. I guess it's my collective knowledge and experience that motivates my topics. I suppose one collects a certain amount of wisdom in age and I'd like to think I have gleaned a level of undertstanding about myself and the world around me. In the end we all just want to be loved and live a simple and fulfilling life. That is my aim. Hope that gives you an insight. Take care. T
