my delimitative end?

15 04 2016


Expectations conspire to confine me;

Anxieties hungry to bind me;

Fears scheme to define me.


Is this, then, my delimitative end?


Living in a system that would affirm this desuetude – spinning words dripping, sweet and savory?


Powerless against omnipotent exterior forces, an illusion I count as truth?


I am called beyond this prescriptive and self-subscribed living –

freedom within my DNA.


I’d rather have the Limitless be my guide…

Unchained from Expectation’s hopeless yoke;

Unbound from Anxiety’s insatiable appetite;

Undefined from Fear’s rigid borders.

But Love –

always Love…

Hi Marilyn. Thanks so much and I will be remembering you and your Italy travels. I hope all works out in Assisi – my wife did a retreat which she loved. Prayers.
