What Does It Mean to Be?

Being

What does it even mean to BE,
free?
Doing, doing never done,
run.
That is all I’ve ever known,
moan.
Body, mind, and soul yearn to rest,
quest.
That new goal must be addressed,
professed.
Heart caught within the mind’s net,
reset.

  1. Love it! Great way to express our slavery to existence and the heart’s yearning to break from its submission to the mind’s constant lashing! I tell ya, I feel like “mush” is my middle name and I’m running for everyone but myself most times.
