    Against My Nature

    Will these feelings ever fade away?
    Will I always remain the same?
    Guided by a wayward mind,
    leading myself
    to be led astray?

    Like a wind that can't be named,
    no direction that it stays,
    leads me North, just to turn me South,
    just to prove
    that it can't be tamed.

    Could I ever just stand my ground?
    Resist myself,
    tie myself down?
    Instead of being blown away.
    I blow away,
    a leaf constantly blown around.

    Do the animals ever question why?
    Whatever it is they feel inside?
    Ask their creator not to run or hide,
    but fight,
    even if they themselves die.

    Could I ever be that way?
    Push aside these feelings that pull away?
    A tree rooted down, firm and sound,
    rebelled against it's nature,
    never destined to hit the ground.

    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    Enjoyed your poem,
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty
    ~Albert Einstein
