what I have found I give away

there is no love I have today

but only the tired acceptance of pain

that is totally the world's domain


I love being alive

I love having consciousness

but how can one love the world

without the strength of a lion?

how can one love the love

when one is old and totally played

and one's time is past

and one has had one's day?


you are tired

you are true

but in a world without mercy

you are surely through


how much I loved the things I've loved

but I'd give nothing to do them again

I possess them in my very soul

those days are with me and will never go...


if Life is continuous and the quest goes on

and all the past has been accounted for

up to this very instant

then to renew my quest

I must go deeper

and start from there

the clean slate requiring many wipes


what ensues

I'll wait patient to discover

I'm in no rush

there's no hurry to the always now
