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 Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
