As I walk I often ponder on the other worlds about which we know nothing except that of our imaginings and beliefs. This poem is a response to attempts at defining the spirit beyond our limited understanding


Spirit

Oh Spirit who or what are you?
Why do I need to know?
Why do I need to pin you down
Your truth and form to show?
It is enough that you are there
To guide me on my way
To help me make decisions
With the breaking of each day
Depending on the right of it
Dependant on the course
Defending all decisions
That lead to sound recourse
I don’t have to make you fit
Into my earthbound mind
What shape or substance you may be
Is not for me to find
To understand or even guess
If you are spirit or a ghost
I only want to feel you’re here
When I need you most.
