Word of a Sage

The task of our age
in the word of a sage
might be this:
transcendence

for here within the world
of gross reality
we've secured a safety
and a place to be
only imagined by our ancestors

Then the question becomes
in this gift we've been given
can we seek within
and find the rhythm

that coincides
with eternal time
that never ends
and so doing, thus transcend

our mediocrity
or will we settle
still unsatisfied
for a point in time that dies
to dreams of life?
