LEARNING TO FLY
I do believe the human soul evolves:
That in one lifetime (and perhaps some others)
It strives for health and wholeness, which resolves
An issue over which cool reason hovers.
What reason can’t conceive, I shall believe;
It looks around for better evidence
And sees how many never do achieve
Such wisdom (not to mention common sense),
And it despairs of our potential to
Awake, arise and fly to something higher,
To reach a keener consciousness and do
What proves we can transcend this Earthly mire.
The best that I can do is live as if
My soul can fly, as I approach the cliff.
