Face to Face - January 04, 2011

Face to Face

When you come face to face with your own mind
Is all you find, growing wild within
Are your eyes seeking to find
The Golden Fleece
Once again

Are you suddenly fleeing where clouds have gathered
With a burning candle raised on high
Wondering if you have mastered
This profound race of life
Not a tear, you cry

Do you continue walking within opposing views
Saving certain parts of all you find
Thinking surely it's up to you
To tame the wildness
In your mind

When you come face to face with your own mind
Can you gaze upon the wildness and smile
Not give a care if the fleece you find
Yet enjoy the journey
All the while

  5. A poem to put you in deep thought.

    Some may not wish to be confronted with self

    Some may feel more comfortable living false


    A poem which reminds me of everyones final

    destiny, facing ones Creator. If we were {the

    world I mean} to follow these words, which were

    so eloquently written, we should not have a

    problem living life the way we were meant to.

    In Peace, Harmony and most of all with Love.
