A Poem by NC Overton

A poem of life.


Awakening. Enlightenment.

What does it mean?

To see something more. 

The simple reality up on the screen.

Walking blithely through life.

Choosing the left path

Of the fork in the road.

Suffering normalcy’s wrath.

Allow. Truth. Captivated.

Move past the plain.

To see the lighted path.

There’s so much more to gain.

It seems to be true that many go through life on the outer level of consciousness, oblivious to the possibility there might be more to it than just the basic sensual level. The primary word for me in this offering is "allow." In other words, let life be what it is, alert, but without emotional resistance. A difficult road, but if you see the "lighted path," there is no turning back.
