Being (A Poetry Project)

A poem that is born from the struggle of trying to constantly manifest all of the sentiments within the poem.

The goal is to make get this published with the Origami Poems Project. If you enjoy this and would like to see it made, please let me know, I could really use the encouragement!

In: seeds producing manifest activity

Be willing
Own your folly
Know that you are change
Abide within intention
Don’t worry so much
They’re just as confused
Persist
Be yourself:
Love
Slow down

Be patient,
Honest,
Kind
Learn to listen deeply
Abide in silence

In: seeds producing manifest activity

Breathe
Watch yourself like a book
Eat healthy
Forgive
Yourself and others
Let go

Out: manifest activity perfumes seeds

Be helpful
Know that everyone is the center of the universe.

 

Where does this energy come from?
to generate so many sensations;
phenomena, in the usual Buddhist speak.
Maybe it’s not about finding where it
comes from, but accepting that it’s there…
Just be nice,
Be organic,
Don’t color interactions with desired outcomes.
Know when to shut up
And know when to speak boldly.
Know that underneath the tension
There is always love;
Beneath noise
there is always silence.
Know your limitations
and your strengths.
Recognize that we feed off energy;
you are energy.
You are the moment.
Own up to the truth of the moment.
It’s hard to do.
Choose to take pride in doing things for other people,
you can start with your family.

Surrender,
you don’t always have to be
the authority in the situation.
Know how you’re being used by commercialism.

Be awareness.
Learn how to shed light on
your self-centeredness.
Don’t take yourself so seriously.
Understand how
all forms of mediums bring out selfishness.
Resist.
Know that
when you know one thing deeply,
you can know all things.
Be the effort it takes for real change.
Be open to all interpretations.

Let the thousand-petaled lotus open;
Accept yourself.

-Love, dad.

P.s. I apologize for the repetition in posts, I’m a bit excited about the idea and wrote the two poems independently, however also wanted them to be experienced as one. Thanks!
