“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”.
Lao Tzu

Many a day has passed you by, since you first started upon your trek
Your eyes seeking out moments of clarification,
Searching for the tiniest clue at times, a miniscule speck,
A glimmer of something perhaps, tales of the final destination,

And yet, tis not religion that neither baffles nor blocks your way,
For familiarities at times are well within your grasp,
Discoveries of the inner you present themselves each and every day,
But times still leave you pondering upon your destined craft,

Intriguing to say at best the very least,
Your pathway of enlightenment will arrive before you know,
A myriad of spirals heralding your mental release,
Will leave you spiritually aglow,

To understand fully, all that is needed is to give pleasure to passion,
Stimulants triggered and allowing your freedom,
To awaken fully, stir emotions and unwrap compassion,
Making way for the bewitching and a sensual Eden,

And soon, the secrets of yesterday will live again in the dawns of the morrow,
Illusionary scents and forbidden fruits spawned from the devil,
You will take back from yourself which you sought to borrow,
In order to achieve your successes and to further revel,

These are just the beginnings of your long overdue transformation,
Your journey of Olde is far from the end,
However you are finally giving in to your transmigration,
And soon, your rewards will be free to spend.

10 thoughts on “Destiny

  1. Great poem and quotes! I agree that we all sometimes look for those finish lines in life instead of enjoying the moment, while being thankful and acknowledging the things that we are able to do to get there. This is such a great reminder, that must be said often, because we all forget to do this probably many times over in our lives.
