Acceptance (my poem)
Walking on a path Encountering fellow travellers How far we go together is of no import It suffices that we wandered There are twists and turns You go left, another continues straight "Farewell, beloved" Maybe there is a terminus Or maybe---just maybe---there are more paths Travellers on yet another adventure Living the moment on an ever-lasting cycle What is the purpose of all this? Staring at the sunset Amazed by the beauty of the cosmic oneness We entertain thoughts that have no answers Laugh, cry, curse the gods for your ignorance You know that beauty is not rationalisable Reduce the vastness to reason if you seek an empty shell Why is beauty so readily recognisable yet undefinable? It makes no sense Travel my dear in search of nothing Seek not the simulacrum of certainty Dream of that one kiss that excites you Paths converge and diverge As memories fade and hopes arise And remember the kind words of the sage: "Why should it? Why should it make sense to you?"
My poetry is but an attempt to record feelings. All poems are written in one go. I do not tend to their aesthetic appeal, as that requires extra processing which detracts from my truth in the moment.
