Success is a thought that takes credit for life

but life already is the image of what the thought looks to be

the thought craves, strives, seeks and wants

But it is a shadow of “what is”

By following the shadow and wanting to become

we never arrive, because success isn’t anything that can ever be found

to take credit for what we think we are

Makes life; stale and dull, and us someone we don’t know

By judging our life on perceived rewards

Leaves us standing in the shade of what thought can never show

letting go of the need to arrive

lets us relax in the splendor of one sun

the one moment that can never begin or come to a end

the place were life is born without need to defend

And when we close our eyes

we pass through the glass that shows us the light

as we become what we have always been

but could never comprehendimage
