What can I say
Every human has untold
potential laced with
essential ingredients
ushering success

But do remember that the
past is gone forever except
for the murmurings of
dissipating nostalgia

For our consciousness
grows and reinvents our
being within the cascades
of time

And don’t fantasise niceties
of the future while leaving
the present in shambles,
tattered and torn

So be the children of the
moment with reverberating
inspiration, glimpsing the
fleeting images of
eternity passing our way

So always be the children
of the now whence unity
of being naturally
accentuates the
quintessence of self
within Self

For you are the meandering
stream with humble
beginnings yet laden with
primordial knowledge
and spiritual discerning
within the gushing river
of no return

And witnessing the
separate yet subtle
dialectical mingling of
sweet and salty waters
of life

Of untold mysteries and
miracles with layers of
indifferent waves upon
waves before meeting the
sky

And transcending into
absolute darkness to
the bottom of the sea

With incessant plumes of
rumbling volcanic inferno
lighting the enchanting
yet untamed horizon

And so be the beauty and
majesty of the sea with
flashes of brimming
potential to uncover and
transform this visible
temporal world
