Come To Know

It doesn't really seem to matter
what it is we think
for in the end, it all comes down to this
that we finally find an answer
ringing clear and true throughout our being
that moves to say, beyond a doubt
we know

Know it as a feel, a sense
of blood that rushes through our veins
as nerves begin to come to life again
alight within this surge of living energy
when real becomes another new
and sparkling way of life

As some figure, disembodied
one great symbol of authority
that speaks within the dark
of our unknowing
arises to imbue this life
with myriad hues of living light
in ways that make us move
and seek to find a way to prove
its fiery yet invisible existence

Is it there, within the air?
or here, so deep inside
that walls cannot divide
its living essence
as sensation comes alive
to fly and then to dive
to heights and depths
yet unimagined

All encompassing
this life we live
when we finally forgive
the pain imposed
by those who have not come to know
of love's reality . . .
