Never Wander Far From Your Heart's Light - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

Never Wander Far From Your Heart's Light

Sometimes I think of

All the sickness

In our world

If one becomes

Engaged

In this sickness

Over time

One will become

Sick

So

Live within the darkness

Of men and women

Yet

Hold tight upon

The Light

Never wander far

From your

Heart’s Light

Live amongst men and women

And

Participate in community

Yet

Do not join in

The dark intentions of

Those whom

Manipulate others

For their own purposes

Stay true to the Light

Within yourSelf

So as

To show a way

Out of the

Madness of 

Men and women

Note:  This is a poem I began several months back.  I had it on a small piece of paper tucked into a small notebook which I had forgotten about.  I found it today,  finalised it,  and published it for the first time on my blog today.

Thanks - nice poem!
Feels like the way to make in this world nowadays...

I have an advice to give to - never wander far from your remote control close so when the crazy politicians talk in the TV you can switch channel fast and stay calm and balanced ;)

You are welcome Magnus and I will keep the remote control advice for future tV viewing of the news.

Take care and happy summer,
Mike

Quite profound Mike, we can exist within without (being) what we are existing within, basically, we don't have to be what we experience.

Stranger in a Strange Land said...

Yes, Matt...that's another way to say it.

Thanks for your insightful comment.

Kindest regards,
Mike
