You are here today… Yet, who are you? Trapped in the corollary of familiarity, Unidimensional relatedness, Insipid, toneless expression Of a longing too afraid to Assert, Profess, Demand Ownership of worth… You are here today… Yet, what for? Around the conspicuous waste And never-ending loops Unfertile soils eroded by Regularity, commonplace Demure Endured Obscured Stereotype of Acceptance You are here today… Yet, could you, would you? Depart from a life, thoughts, an identity, Mirrors of ancestry and impositions Broken streams of spirit Detached Insured Persuaded The cautionary tale about unrestrained choices And… Be here today… Take a detour! Pledge Adherence to the Universal As the obvious emerges The game of life Infinite arc of perceptions Playful Provocative Daring The Alphas and Omegas The YOU in you that’s Eternal YOU are here today… You always were and shall be! I finally made your acquaintance! The ever-present Detour I Vow to YOU.
