I've been writing for over 40 years. I enjoy meditation and am interested in both western and eastern spiritual practices.

Portfolio | Become A Fan
A hundred times I've tried
A hundred times I've lied
I've lived this life before
And perhaps, I'll even live it once more

A thousand years I've seen
Half of them were in a dream
Then I woke up to this land
Brought here on God's command

I've worn many different faces
Throughout life's numerous places
As a deserted and abandoned soul
Or a familiar with a Divine role

Dharmic paths and evil ways
Have both filled my nights and days
Chanting mantra's, bowing down
Has eased the pain that's all around

The 'Wheels of Life' have webs that bind
That ties me to this daily grind
Like many seekers of God's own truth
I manoeuvre for the Divine proof

Innocently I sit along the shore
And knock upon God's sacred door
There is an echo I hear inside
Reverberating my human pride

The door is sealed, I'm not Divine
Though God has patience, for the sublime
My seeking ways have led me here
I'm oh so far, yet oh so near

There is much to do, much to be done
Beneath the stars, the moon and Sun
Like other seekers of Divine Love
I place my fate, in God's Holy Dove
