Limits, no limits


What the world says and what the spirit says - some thoughts....


LIMITS, NO LIMITS

"Limits,
lack,
insufficiency,
not enough,
borders,
boundaries,
limitations,
impossible,
separation,
fear,
I can't,"
the world screams -
and we listen...

"No limits,
no lack,
abundance,
more than enough,
infinity,
endlessness,
immenseness,
all things possible,
unity,
joy,
I can,"
the soul whispers -
but we don't hear...

  1. This is what I call negative V. positive.
    written in a way that even the most negative person can understand. Very well put together and interesting to read.

  2. You're right, Yvonne. It is negative v. positive. It was an attempt by me to try and get things sorted out in my mind about who and what we really are. I find it useful to try and write a poem sometimes to try and clarify my ideas about spirituality. Do you do that at times, too?

  3. I love short verses, they are easy to grasp, simple and vivid. It's like the dialogue in prose. The effect is direct. I like it!

  4. Thanks so much, Liana, for your comment. My aim when I write poetry is to always try and make my message clear - and sometimes all one needs is a few words to convey a lot of meaning!

    All the best
