What flows across our sentient presence
Is our humanity, dancing in the words
Which are brought to life in many forms.
The choosing of our words lies in our dark matter;
A sub-conscious living-ness finding the known.
In creating together our words of meaning
The world we choose to create appears,
Worlds which are brought to life in many forms.
Our inherent-ness, an ability to build form,
Requires a past shaping of words which union
With the present and begin to shape understanding.
Bringing together the past to the present mystifies;
Holding onto what is unknown allows creation.
Our humanity is too fragile for perfection:
Always wandering towards the newness
The raw horror we create becomes hidden.
Understanding frailties and our joy-filling being
Requires a presence within and without words:
A beyond-ness brought to life in glorious forms.
The choosing of our words lies in a willingness to live;
A conscious living-ness finding the unknown.
Dancing between the known and unknown,
Always wondering about our human frailties,
Leads to all the ways of living a good life.
