Infinity Is Now

Post by audiofool » Sun Nov 19, 2017 11:32 pm

Right
as rain
you are
I ought to listen
when you say
"Let go"
and
"You are
not guilty"
am I hard
of hearing
or just
hard-hearted?

I protest
as if
to prove my worth
to exonerate myself
in your eyes
when you have
accepted me
without reservation
old habits
must yield
to new understandings

I am
the source
of my suffering
born of desire
I want
but have not
I attempt
to externalize
to blame
to find a scapegoat
you'll do nicely

your assessments
are laser-accurate
time and again
it has all
been measured
back to me
and I failed
to measure up
to my own standard
the song is familiar

No judging
no measuring
no assessing
simply accept
self and other
as is
see the beauty in
perceived flaws
the potential
in every soul;
behind the suffering
there is love
greatness
infinity

"Freely you have received,
freely give."
