“ Don’t Stop ” – for egoist thought –

There’s a part of us

That will not stop,

Tugged by the other

With egoist thought,

On all that matters

Of living life sought,

As an ultimate factor

Would dissertate not,

What the other fosters

Said vantage together,

For what soul bought

And so found garner,

As life’s integral state

Should now discover,

Be of dubious grace

Soul can but borrow,

Of ones meagre space

Held bogus of equity,

Amounting to nought

Put aside the self-pity,

With brief time’s allot

For extent it shall hold,

That may ne’er realize,

Dream of eon time bold

In life borrowed implied…

 

Yet want part of don’t stop

From newborn to grow old

Hence want reaching till dust!

    Let’s live boldly, with expectation…
    Jean-Jacques – a perfect thought for this festive season. One that I will take with me into 2020, a new year and a new decade. We are on a grand adventure…

    • Thank you, Rebecca. This reflection is a kind of look at people’s denial or inability to decide, of one way or another, to do or not to do, like the left pulling at the right and vise versa. Those many times we struggle with ourselves, as in both sides of what can become a torturous decision-making, though they be of self-imposed issues… But as you rightly say, one must live boldly and deal with indecision that can but waste life’s precious meagre time fate allots us. So onward, with a said grand adventure, to its fullest and by all humanely conscious means. Thus may this new decade be in keeping with your logical positivism. Happy days to you and yours, my dear friend!

      • You speak such wonderful words of wisdom. Yes Yes Yes!!! A new decade of possibilities. May we continue to shine light in dark places, my dear friend.

    • Thank you, Paulette, and indeed one can see it as timely, most especially for all whom seemingly find it difficult to bring oneself together to decide, for or against, what is right and what is wrong. For ultimately we must live with what we individually or collectively choose. Happy days, very dear friend, for whatever you choose, now and again!
