Acquisition v Introspection poem



Acquisition v Introspection
 poem

I buy a faster car
… the car loses its appeal
it’s really a symbol
of steering your own direction
...
cold, lifeless metal
what is a car?


I buy a bigger house
… the house loses its appeal
it’s really a symbol
of a larger Self
cold, inert bricks
what is a house?


I want everything
… compulsive desires
to clothe the emptiness.
it’s really a symbol,
a meaningful thirst
for the divine
volatile, contradictory processes
what am “I”?

being sustains happy, fulfilled people
having never does.
It takes a while to learn this ..
