a little old poetry

Brutal Awareness Tuesday March 3rd, 2009 09:37 am

Brutal awareness
That's the whole lot
Of all the problems
You'll decide you've got

Live through your life
Full division and strife

Awareness at all
Still's some to recall

And when you do
It'll be clear to you

Awareness is all
That matters to fall

From projection before
To reluctance past

The arc of your life
Is just but a glance

Limited unlimited
That is the eye
Of the being of Man
Justify, sanctify

To exist is to limit
To live is eternal
A glitch in the system
No system's worth all

From glory we come

To sieve through this state
Of existence eternal
A knock's at the gate

Who could it be

We ask to relate
To open and see
Is more than tempt fate

R David Foster 2009
