The Forest Where the Pieces Lie

 

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’
‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.
‘I don’t much care where -‘ said Alice.
‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.
‘- so long as I get SOMEWHERE,’ Alice added as an explanation.
‘Oh, you’re sure to do that,’ said the Cat, ‘if you only walk long enough.”
― Lewis Carroll

 

Wandering in a spiritual desert
searching for a destination.
I was told the truth was around here somewhere
tho the signs pointed in all directions.
I started out finding pieces scattered
like tired dreams
yet they shone true as the summer sky
yet like blue sky puzzle pieces
they didn’t seem to fit
so I changed my road
and found still more
so I kept on
grasping for pieces of blue sky truth
and brown mud truth
and angel eyed truth
yet few details emerged.
The big picture eluded me
tho I got hints of its final shape.
Now millions of pieces and
thousands of roads later
I know it still eludes me
I may never get where I’m going
yet this forest will always be my home.

Inner Truth

 

“If you stumble about believability, what are you living for? Love is hard to believe, ask any lover. Life is hard to believe, ask any scientist. God is hard to believe, ask any believer. What is your problem with hard to believe?”
― Yann Martel

 

Hard to believe my life got so good
Hard to believe I’m trying
Hard to believe I’ve lasted this long
Hard to forget my crying

 

I used to find my beliefs
blossoming like some flower
Then they left me one by one
felt like I rented by the hour
It’s hard to have faith
in anything, when faith
leaves you bleeding
It’s not so much a high ideal
that fed this junkie’s needing

 

I was that clown
that aimless fool
who wandered from sect to sect
but too much sects
leaves one unimpressed
till none could have affect

 

I finally gave up
stopped searching outside
myself for deeper truth
Needing to believe
in someone else
insecurities of youth
Inside myself
the universe
connection at the core
A deeper light
A deeper love
than any I’ve known before
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G
