About the Poem

This poem is about Who We Are. The words come from the Silence. They are the words of awakening from sleep to Light. They are the truth of life - of me and you. They are the awakenings of an ordinary man no different from you who has simply realized how special ordinary Is. I give them with love in the hope they will awaken or expand in you an awareness of how special You Are.

A Few Visitor Comments

The poem was very abstract, it puts a new vantage point on life. I simply enjoyed it.


If all there was to know
Was known by only me
And the only place to go
I was all there was to see.

I'd start at the beginning
And I'd make myself anew
With a will that's free for sinning
To forget all that I knew.

Then I could learn again
That which I could only teach
That the truth of I as man
Is there's nothing I can't reach.
