the first stone

November 12, 2013 § Leave a comment

in the road
to awareness
is learning what to fear

to look at it
it is surprisingly similar
to the rest –
interlocking nicely with
knowing what to love,
common sense
and how to translate sarcasm

we would move steadily ahead
if we could somehow manage
keep our eyes forward –
feeling for the solid footing
of personal faith,
dimensional growth,
well paced cognition

so much further along

if we did not return
time and again
to that first stone

sometimes leaping
over sense of humor
or skipping self respect
just to plant our feet
on the cold slate
of our beginnings

so sure that the terrors
of the world never stop multiplying
and that we must
always know
