In This Life

I can't let go - I'm still alive.
No matter any alibis that
scientific modes condemn
me to. And in this life of mine,
there lies - potential, and yet
more than this - for every
step I take upon the path
of love and life and healing
becomes another blessed
moment of deliverance.

Never for myself alone -
oh no, for I would grant
this truth unto the multitudes,
if only any one of them
would truly listen with
the power of their hearts.

And you see, I can't let go -
for I am still alive - within this
whole of great experience.
No matter any alibis that
scientific modes condemn
me to.

And in this life of mine,
there lies (no matter time
or age or the indifference that
mere science came to preach)
potential, and yet more
than even that - for every
step I take upon the path
of love and life and healing
becomes another blessed
moment of deliverance - and
this ripples out from one small
movement of the wind within
the pond - into forever...
