Commitment to an upward path requires
an open mind to find the wisest ways
that minimize attachments and desires,
but glean more cogent meaning from our days.
Moreover, wiser consciousness creates
cerebral skills to fathom and behold
events, perusing features, facts and fates,
then grasp, en masse, each slant and twist, all told.
The shapeless hours and years spent coasting through
a life without surpassing aim, or goal,
describes a dust-bound wretch without a clue.
Life's only point is sculpturing a soul
from stony self, transforming human trash
to royalty in a radiant flash!
