“ He Is As One ” ~ with he who lives inside ~

 

He is as one

With he whom resides

Abidingly inside,

Who lived within

When body draped

With youthful skin,

Yet he who be therein

Albeit much the same,

Not so the he we see

Worn more than thin,

With cragged façade

Those years did carve,

Upon a now worn lad

The while resides as one,

With he who lives inside!

 

                                                       ode to they who have arrived

“ Raison d’Être ” ~ by design ~

You plough

Through life

At first uncertain

Of the reason,

You learn endeavour

Not sure of purpose

For its season,

Then search

The darkness

With youthful zeal,

For meaning

‘Twould serve

To understand,

By what design

Life holds a measure

Of raison d’être…

 

Now you’ve gone

Journey beyond,

Inclined you pause,

If you’re to find

A worthy cause,

With or without

Said raison d’être!
