The Story (FF 74)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



Everybody got a story
I tell mine as an allegory of a spiritual journey
Simply learning, discerning what’s important
Living a parable, the hare versus the tortoise
Sometimes facts can hold you back and fiction lets you believe
You can achieve goals rationally far out of reach
Chisel a sculpture carved out of speech
Shining stars that can carry as far as our heart beats
And past that, amassing all the good
Relearning truths forgotten once universally understood
I’m a kernel of the universe
I’m born from and one day will succumb and return back into the earth
It’s not grief I should feel but true peace revealed
Once the veil is peeled back we can see what’s real
A meal for my soul
It took a while for me to find the dinner table hope my food ain’t get cold
Hope I follow the light that glows within side me
I find the gift of life so inspiring
Die with a smile on my face and still trying
My feet rooted deep to the ground my mind flying
