What would it take?

What would it take this person here

To free themselves of pain and fear;

To feel so light upon their feet,

To watch the darkness fast retreat?

 

What would it take this being now

To lose control, to just allow;

To loosen the impassioned grip

And into freeing presence slip?

 

What would it take this heart of stone,

To castigate the ‘all alone’;

To feel the soul of one or more,

The essence of a global core?

 

What would it take this mind of steel

To ditch the doubt and just to feel

The air above, the ground below;

The sounds of breathing deep and slow….

 

Another day at work till late?

More social media saturate?

More likes and buys, more hits and wins?

More televised commercial grins?

 

More dramas, worries, lusts and fears?

More stress and self-defeating tears?

More stoking fires of wants and needs

Until the flame of lack recedes?

 

For now is not the time of ‘more’,

Of ‘fill-it-up’ to ease the gnaw,

Or crude desire or self-deceit

That lurks in every city street

 

The time has come to seize what’s less

To savour more with wise finesse

To own the depths of self and heart……

To jettison the shopping cart.
