Not Knowing Left from Right

By Jane Tawel

October 20, 2021

I am directionally challenged,

not knowing left from right,

which has worked to my advantage,

in silly political fights.

*

And if you ask me up? or down?

My head will spin quite right around,

for even heaven and hell, my dear.

are not out there but present with us here, I fear.

We don’t have that much far to go,

to peer inside to what we know,

and lose the bad, to find the good,

within us is Eternal Flow.

*

The truth is?—Life is seek and sway.

So, walk in circles to walk The Way.

By finding what you think’s outside,

You’ll find you have The Way inside.

*

Yes, to The God, direction-less,

I hope that I can do my best,

and not know what is out or in,

or on my right, or on my left,

or left behind, or up ahead,

or down below, or up above,

but that I will get lost and tossed,

and topsy-turvy in True North’s Love.

Still not old enough to know better. I root around and explore ideas in philosophy, spirituality, poetry, Judeo-Christian Worldview, family, relationships, and art. Often torn between encouragement & self-directed chastisement, I may sputter, but I still keep trying to move forward.

  1. Yes indeed, flowing with the ebb and allowing the dips and highest of highs. We are all in an energy of “being right” when true balance for our world happens from within. Once we can connect to that Light within, all else feels trivial. Divine love is the only truth ❤ Thank you for this piece dear Jane 🤗🙌

    1. Ah,, thank you so much. The struggle is real, is it not? And yet, not to struggle, well that is not a choice for some like us. Be brave. Be true to you. Know you are loved. Shalom, Jane
