faith, evaluated

the thing I was
I no longer am
the faith I had
it became new
I was proud of
what was vain
I look for quiet
now any peace
will do

It’s interesting to look at this now seven years later.

It is no longer the case that “any peace will do” for me. At the same time I recognize that an opening up was happening at the time of writing this poem that lead to where I am now. After this poem I have listened to many different kinds of points of view regarding being a human: psychology, spirityality, physical existence and motion, presence.

I currently enjoy a view, a presence that is more integrated than I could then imagine. Still, there is an uneasiness in me when writing this. So much is still a mystery. Now that I say this, I actually open up to enjoy the mystery, the endless richness of life that is already here, ready for me to just take in, to digest.
