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 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
