Stability - by Bob Atkinson

Stability
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

allowed within our own desires
mind wanders through funeral fires
into those open laments of language
describing all that's forced upon us

energy deep within covers our being
promoting progress always unseen
adapting here, adapting there
coagulating into raging despair

saw a quote the other day
who survives best remains
those adaptable to rapid change
trout fared better than ponderous whales

do we need to implement
disorder for our betterment
or can we sit back on our rears
live our lives without changing gears?

question now within my heart
grabs in earnest that doubtful art
can we absorb what exists this minute
without sad longing for what isn't?

Or, are we alive due to desire
of our universe to acquire
something out there unknown
that goal of demons driven home
