Between Nothingness and Eternity

Between

Nothingness

and

Eternity

Barren of events,
Rich in pretensions
My earthly life.

Obscurity
My real name.

Wholly unto myself
I exist.

I wrap no soul
In my embrace.

No mentor worthy
Of my calibre
Have I.

I am all alone
Between failure
And frustration.

I am the red thread
Between
Nothingness
And Eternity.

    This poem is awesome – enveloping the entire human condition in a few short lines – who has not lived between the boundaries of enlightenment and frustration – it is encapsulated in the words of the master – walk the path in peace
