The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. MARCEL PROUST, "The Captive," Remembrance of Things Past

Perception



I dance to the songs

Which play within my soul

A clarity which

Exclusively lives

Breathes in possibility

Growth beyond the parameters

Constraining our cosmos...



Many may gather

Pointing, laughing, pitying

I understand their stares

I will not pretend

They don't hurt

Leaving scars on my heart...



Then I hear the echo

The wind singing

The fairies dancing

With me --to songs

They will never hear...



Echoing a harmonized

Heartbeat

The rhythm of the soul

A life force

Of purity & faith...



I realize it is I

Who should pity

THEM....

Open their eyes please

To the truth which lives

In their souls...



"The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."

MARCEL PROUST, "The Captive," Remembrance of Things Past
