The Enlightened


Tearing away
threads of the past
like peeling away
layers of an onion
the more you remove
the more you reveal.

Each layer
a moment
a memory
a year
a lifetime,
perhaps.

To reach the core
the center of self,
inspecting
accepting
emerging
anew
refreshed

Reveling
in the future
the fears
the possibilities
the wonder of it all

What lies ahead
what lies behind
merging once again.

Leave behind
what no longer serves
but never forget
what’s been forged

For within
the depths
of layers
lie
unfound treasures
far and wide

Beauty
Wisdom
Clarity

Just to name a few

A rarity in youth to find,
yet earned and garnered
by the enlightened
