Exploring World, Exploring Self

Exploring World, Exploring Self

A Poem by boobalajcushion

I have been travelling a lot this past year, and I recently ended up in Bali for one reason or other. I had a lot to think over.


Exploring World, Exploring Self

I have had the Balinese rain on my lips, 
Taken from it honeyed sips. 
Felt the warm air brush over my skin and
Explored paths of the mind I never planned.
How can it be? That something so simple, so free
As your thoughts can alter reality? 
As I gaze up through the trees,
I think the branches are like arteries.
Pumping life into the universe
And inspiring thoughts of self worth.
For who are we to judge beauty? 
It is not perfection, it is not lust.
It is not a body, a bust.
It is life, it is our lungs. 
It is our sight, our touch.
Back to basics, simplicity.
Earth, mind, love.

Author's Note

Was going through a little self and surrounding observations, trying to learn how to appreciate myself as much as I appreciate what is around me.

Your observations are like doors of perceptions. You learn to experience new surroundings and that can make world (and life) views more intriguing to ponder. Your thoughts here are deep.
