Lead The Way - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Lead The Way - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins


Lead the way

Yes

Lead the way

And

Be a true leader

Join not with those who lead

The sheep to their slaughter

Rather

Gather the wolves

The teachers

The bearers of new knowledge

Yes

The ones of inspiration

Gather together

Then

Separate paths

Each walking their own way

Teaching of a new tomorrow

Bringing hope where there once was none

Instilling faith in the faithless

Asking the question

Will you be free?

Free of the pain

Free of your chains

Free to walk freely

Upon your Earth

Yes

Gather the wolves

The teachers of Mankind

Bringing both

Love and courage

Bringing Life back to the Lands

Whom will answer the call?

And

Gather

Then

Disperse to the far corners

Of our world

Bringing a message

A message of

Hope in a new tomorrow

Of faith that

Love and reason will be restored

That courage will again take

The hand of Love

And

Join together in a union

Then

In the creation

Of a new tomorrow

A tomorrow

In which the wolves no longer

Prey upon the sheep

A future in which the wolves

Feed and nurture the sheep

A new paradigm

One in which the

Lion, wolf and sheep

Shall live again

Amongst each other

Yes

Amongst each other

As one

Infinity - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



Infinity - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins


Infinity

Infinity already knows of Itself

It is we in the finite

Whom know It not

We are as candles

Without a flame

Yet to be ignited

Yet to be illuminated

Infinity is the flame

We are the unlit

Waiting upon the flame

The flame that consumes

The finite

Until it is  finite

No more

And

Only a memory to us

Joining with the particles of the Universe

Unjoining with the particles of the Universe

Blended in the Infinite

With

All That Is

Then

And

Only Then

Truly understanding both

The finite

And

Infinity

 Note:  I wrote this poem yesterday while watching a movie called,  The Man Who Knew Infinity.
The film is about an early 20th century Indian Mathematician and his struggles to prove his works to those in academia who were duller of intellect and knowing.  His was a direct knowledge which they did not understand.  I have published the poem today for the first time of my blog.

We Will See - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



We will see

Yes

We will see

The future

As well as the past

In the present

When we accrue

More presence of mind

And preside

Within our hearts

From that day

Will a new time arrive

A time driven by the Timeless

A time without time

A time when

Past, present and future

All meet in the moment

No more looking back

No more looking forward

Only looking within

Then

Looking without

Through the lens of the heart

The heart willsee all

The heart will know of All

The heart will create

A world of timeless beauty

The beauty of All There Is

Projected out

Into your world of Man

Colouring your communities

With that timeless beauty

That eminates from within

The human heart

Minds will heal

Bodies will heal

Human community will begin to heal

Then will come a song

A song of celebration

A song of completion

A song will willl reach the heavens

And

Permiate the Earth

A choir of angels singing with humans

A new paradigm

A new platform

A new stage

From which to enact

Humans transformed

Yes

Humans transformed

Into

Half Man

Half Divine

Enriched by both

Heaven and Earth

Newly arrived

Newly united

Newly Here

Being in

The Now of Creation

Increase The Integrity Of Your Being - A Quotation from M.N. Hopkins




Increase the integrity of your being and be one who can offer a better way to all he comes in contact with. Worry not so on the future, but build a hopeful, optimistic view for the days ahead. Find the calm, the balance that is already within your being. Live as a lion, yet appear to the outside world as a lamb. Be gentle with others, yet strong of Spirit.
