Rhe Allegory of Me


Vested endurance, confidence sublime
I Am my forerunner of being divine
Inheriting self-realization purchased by time
Born of my being, the ancient mime

This is my allegory, my ancestral sarong
Honoring my behavior, conscious of being strong

Perfect aspirations, flawless by design
Ambitions of intuition, become my mind
Dreamscapes intoxicate like ancient wine
Living in the moment, the eternal shrine

Innate visions, genuinely true
Convincing myself, I always knew
The consciousness of my Being, the only clue
My universal existence, an everlasting spew

This my allegory, my ancestral sarong
Honoring my behavior, conscious of being strong

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
