The Art of Looking
at life and not just your own,
how much is reality, and how much is unknown.
It's not measured in beauty, possessions or wealth,
but measured in consciousness and judged by yourself.
Do you wonder if this is your chance,
to examine the future and all that might last?
Material things just gather the dust,
whereas thought becomes life force and this is the thrust.
A look in the mirror at the start
of each day,
a vision of emptiness ...but a nice résumé.
It's all in the cards ~ but its not yet a deck.
sit back and slow down, take the time to reflect.
at life and into your own,
understanding the choices that cannot be postponed.
