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.
