Versus Nature

“Versus Nature” – written and read through Walter
The picture of how things ought to be
I have constructed so very carefully.
But the outside world is not aligned
with what I hold inside my mind.

How dare the world now present
what I don't prefer and do resent!
Resistance arises to what is here,
thoughts, feelings, emotions all appear.

This tangled mess of energy
is not something that I want to see.
With force of will I push it down
beneath, behind and underground.

I add it to the suppressed glob
that grows like an unruly mob.
It poisons all life's interactions
divides, separates, creates factions.

What I have pushed down so deep
appears as dreams that haunt my sleep,
the mind's projections of this mess,
are not a fix, just restless rest

By Grace and discernment I start to see
that glob of tar… it isn't me.
When I turn my gaze toward that "thing"
Awareness begins the melt of spring.

Slowly and with courage now,
I release that which I had bound,
I let go and experience relief,
let go of anger, sadness, grief.

Moving on from this point
I dismantle preferences joint by joint
I erase my expectations of how
Life should unfold - this is my vow.

For Nature paints just as She will
and knowing my desires mean nil
I relax, sit back, enjoy the show…
Nothing to do, nowhere to go.
