The Exploration of Eternity

This heartbeat keeps going
Yearning for all things colourful and surreal
Into a seasonal sense of inner peace eloping
Upon a marriage of hope, of feelings so near and dear
Towards a metaphoric fantasy of a true days blessing
Smelling and tasting an opportunity of a priceless fortune
Limitless in its own freewill

And upon these eyes that gander up into the sky
They become filled with so many things
Built by sacredness and loving
An acceptance that feels growing beyond the ages
An epiphany of a personal revolution
That can be shared once all falls into solid base

A bevy of things so sacred and full of love
Full of relief, never judging nor looking back
A quest of a dual acceptance
One that feels like beyond all personal ages
An epiphany flying higher above than any sort of regret

But then, can this epiphany be real?
Day dreaming can tear apart this very will
Fortitude on the brink of submission
Yet, too stubborn to ever let go

Hence the struggle keeps on going
To the core of what presently remains
A battle of me versus my biggest enemies
The personal depression I call my demons
Live upon what has fully been over lived

And even now my words can be encoded
Perhaps even taken in a wrongful kind of way
In spite of a distant misunderstanding
Towards a venture where clarity is obtained

My heart is always in the right place
No matter where my mind shall ever go

This soul wants to fly away from this body
This soul wants to go beyond and flow
But for now they must be unified with each other
So my very spirit can continue to grow

I shall keep venturing on with love and compassion
Believing like I have never believed before

The time is now
As I reside at the present of a happily self-rooting core
Where I cheer onto something even larger
Something that goes even beyond even evermore

Into eternity
My soul shall always go beyond the limits of growth
Into the past, present and future
Where time ceases to exist, anymore

When I no longer have a heartbeat
My soul shall explore all universes
Into a realm of love and galore

Even then
My soul shall always continue to grow

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
