Who We Are... a poem
Who We Are
By Tony DeLorger © 2012
Who are we if not vessels of potential,
landscapes on which we apply layers of experience,
evolving into a microcosm of possibility,
and in acceptance and outward expression becoming whole.
The actuality of who we become,
a result of our choices and response to each moment,
a collective of understanding and the design of our life path,
what we want and deem important in our unfolding.
Life is less about what happens to us,
and more about how we deal with each circumstance,
our attitudes and biases the detailed collector of challenges to come,
the defining moments that bring us to the truth.
The truth is simplicity itself,
when stripped of human thought and the complexities we bring,
always open and distinct it its form and revelation,
truth pleading discovery from an open mind.
Love alone dissociates the forms of ego and intent that binds us to delusion,
and delivers us to a selfless understanding,
opening the door to a broad perspective and an untainted reality,
a vision of how it is rather than how we wish it to be.
In love can we find the solace of serenity,
the untethered soul within us in a state of freedom,
not bound by the will of human aspiration,
but at rest within the knowledge of self.
