to live in this world…

to live in this world
yet be not of it
was always the case for me
if I could make one solemn oath
it would be to disagree
with war, hate, injustice, & destruction
of all living creatures on this planet
for years I slowed my breath in praise
journeyed to a place deep inside
lights would come purple or white
there was no place to hide
then one day in breathless state
out into the universe I did expand
became part of every leaf and blade
part of every molecule, and every grain of sand
there is no words to describe this state
my mind knows not where to start
but in those moments I touched grace
had the universe in my heart…

One thought on “to live in this world…

  1. I FLED Him, down the nights and down the days;
    I fled Him, down the arches of the years;
    I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways
    Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears
    I hid from Him, and under running laughter.
    Up vistaed hopes I sped;
    And shot, precipitated,
    Adown Titanic glooms of chasmèd fears,
    From those strong Feet that followed, followed after.
    But with unhurrying chase,
    And unperturbèd pace,
    Deliberate speed, majestic instancy,
    They beat—and a Voice beat
    More instant than the Feet—
    ‘All things betray thee, who betrayest Me.’
    from – The Hound of Heaven
    By Francis Thompson (1859–1907)
