Becoming….

From birth
we are in the process
of becoming

But what ?
Unanswerable
Confused

Children
the young
All on a path
the path
to becoming

But what ?
To where ?
For what ?

Super-highway
Donkey trail
Are they different ?
Is one better ?

We are all
on a path to
become

And we’re sure
so sure
so confident
we know where we are
going

Do we ?
Are we ?
Where does this path
go ?

Cities
small and large
east and west
north and south
Where is the path ?
What logic ?

Or is it ?
Is there ?
On this path
one learns:

No retreat
No reset
Even if re-tracing one’s steps
was possible
it is a different path
So we march forward
soldier-like

Fearful
but then
meaning is found
To love
unconditionally
Does the lioness question
her love for the cubs ?

To love
Then the realization
…..this path goes
nowhere

We learn to love
We accept loss and pain
This is
becoming

Lovers awaken in the morning
smiling at each other
The night’s joys
fresh
“Do you love me ?”, he asks
She smiles:
Unconditionally

We never arrive
this path stretches
as far as we can see, feel, taste
To where ?

We march to our death
There is no exit
from this donkey-path-superhighway

Becoming…..
We are consumed
in the service of our people
We love
We lose
all in the end
All
Empty husks

This is
Becoming
