resident spirit

in residence poem by steven james humphreys

what do we know

other than what’s

in our own mind

and emotions

for an entire

lifetime spent?

it strikes me odd

we do not know

ourselves

better than we do,

yet we must

admit when we

look in our

bathroom mirrors

that we

cannot escape

saying,

‘I am’.

having learned

imagination

is the true reality

which creates

our lives,

I know full well

we’ve lived

past thoughts

a creation of our minds

which all fade into

memories

of a lived

life, an illusory

feeling that our

living essence

has actually

been, here, all along

into what we all must agree,

is the physical…

a

hurdle

to

the

end

boundary

of which

just like the mirror

we gaze into everyday

we meet

eternity

with our invisible

in resident spirit

face to face.
