The Moments Of The Soul

water drop fantasy

I seek no explanations,
I do not wish to find
The secrets of the Universe
Within the confines of my mind.

And yet I yearn to know much more,
To understand what I now don’t,
Realising, as I think it through,
I probably, really, won’t.

The human part of me races forth,
Driving to fulfill its goal,
Never understanding or listening
To the reasons of my soul.

So I find myself in places wondering
‘How the heck did I get here?’
Trying to reassess
Purpose, reason, fear.

Beginning now to get it,
Life’s not about the goal
But the moments in the journey,
The moments of the soul.

  1. A really beautiful soul powm Rob brimming with reflection and almost asking questions knowing already there are no answers.I think for me the answers lie in the living experoence and we only know what we need to know for today as it is being lived. Not sure if this makes sense! 😊

    • Absolutely Christine…as we move through, moment by moment, so we find answers in the choices we have and make – experience the great teacher! In the awareness of soul’s need and not the human wants, I must add!! 🙂
