Uncertain Times

Times are uncertain

Perhaps always were.

Now precarious truth

Is underscored.

*

Will we blindly

Keep to what was?

Deluded, sedated

Ignore what is?

*

Or embrace reality

With its mountains and pits.

Find our nobility

Drop our base fears.

*

Let go of our hindrances

Truly co-exist

Courageously, kindly

Be what we are.

I do believe that it is in shedding what does not serve us and others; that we come closer to who we actually are – perhaps more so, than when we gain.

Mind Council

The Council came to order.

Anxiety feared a fall.

Ego took centre stage.

His charisma wooed them all.

Anger blurted out,

A persuasive call to arms.

Compassion tried to talk about;

The need for all to calm.

Fear looked for an escape.

Courage wouldn’t see him fly.

Doubt said that all were wrong.

Fatalism just wanted to die.

Then Honesty stood firm,

And called for Intelligence.

Who saw a chance to learn,

And all the rest saw sense!
