Within Us

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

Within us is the power to create, preserve and destroy
but which is the power that we all do most employ?
We are all struggling to gain that which we know
will give all the knowledge and strength to show;
what we imagine ourselves to be perhaps or wish to express
in this world of name and form where nothing lasts I confess.

Each person has their aspirations and cherished dreams
yet very few are they who have realised them it seems.
All that is to be had is acquired a little at a time
going in the right direction we achieve our prime.
If we come across too much too soon we may get lost
and possessing it all will be a burden or unknown cost.

When we know ourselves to be what we really are
we experience our true nature like a shining star
that shines in the dark and sheds its light upon all
irrespective of their condition be they great or small.
To get to this state we must plunge deep within our being
and fetch the pearl of great price that's most worth seeing.

Very nice! I especially liked the first line..."Within us is the power to create, preserve and destroy."

We always hear about 'creating' and 'destroying'... but seldom about 'preserving'. And yet, this act of preservation might be just as - or more - important than the act of creating. How much is lost to how many because we don't take care to preserve it?

Thank you again.

Thanks for reading and your thoughtful comments Ron and yes you're absolutely right where would we all be today if nobody or nothing was ever preserved.
