“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style” Maya Angelou

MORE TO LIFE

Crossing the rivers of indifference

Swimming into awareness

Where all the whirling stops

The heart wins over the mind...

There is more to life than
meets the eye....



Perceptions running free

Like crystal clear waterfalls

Bringing the gift of lucidity

Revealing the perfect reality...

There is more to life than
meets the eye....



Touching the very essence

In which all life is rooted

I'll call upon the silence

The vast void...

There is more to life than
meets the eye....



Defining my illusions

I will ban from my soul

All the melancholy accumulated

From endless nights of longing...

There is more to life than
meets the eye...



I know because I have caught a glimpse

Of those portals of eternity

While I explored ethereal routes

On iridescent wings of butterflies...

There is more to life than
meets the eye....



Like ripe red apples on a tree

The stars twinkle on the firmament

Inviting me to decode their mystery

And in audacious determination

I move into life, I move into you....

There is more to life than
meets the eye....
