The Great Escape or the Plight of the soul in retrospect


I wanted to be James Bond and save the world today
I wanted to be the guy who takes over the world
I wanted to be a model
I wanted to be a tough guy
I wanted to be a billionaire
I am still waiting for my numbers to come in
I wanted to climb the highest mountain sail the farthest sea
I just wanted the train to move today
I am a spiritual being on a physical journey
I am spiritual being not in a spiritual place

The mirror can be my greatest friend if I let it
My girl can be my clearest mirror if I let her
I didn’t let the past draw me back
I didn’t let the future pull me ahead
I looked into my past and understood
I looked into my present and it felt right
I looked into my future and was happy
I looked into myself and loved myself
I breathed the fresh air and loved the scent
I loved today and let tomorrow worry about itself

I was a magician
I was a prince
I was loved beyond belief
I had superpowers
I had the greatest purpose imaginable
I thought and I made it all happen
Everything was right in front of me the sky the sun the stars all of it
I was a bird I was a plane I must have been
I was a spiritual being on a spiritual journey
I was the highest mountain

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
