What Does It Mean...?

What does it mean to have it all?
...a plan a hope a dream a goal...

fast and slow
high and low
big and small
can we have it all?
what should we aim for?
where is the key to the door?
what door--all doors?
where is our door?

learn from all
whether tall or small
famous or not
it's what they've got

can we listen to our inner ears..?
sometimes far, sometimes near
it's ok to shed some tears
it can be healthy to look at our fears

to be oneself in the midst of peers

to stand in the crowd and feel clear
it's irrelevant whether they cheer...

it's ok to be you
and if you're in a stew
feeling a bit blue
begin simple and anew
start with what you can do.

Some music, on a similar frequency, for your enjoyment...
Excerpt from At Far, Brought Near
on my "Anew at Home" CD.

Thanks, Norman, for this beautiful poem; it made my day a little more soft and things 'afar' brought a little more near - oh dear, oh dear, oh dear :-)
