Inertia

In the twilight of life,
at the turning point
upon the hill of habit,
shall I descend the other side,
or garner my wings and fly?

Having not remembered my Creator,

until the days of my youth were past,

I am caught midway in the flight of fancy

by a torrent of wind that creates resistance

to change, even for the betterment of my soul,

as I make an effort everyday to find my way.

~~~~~ ~~~~~

Teshuvah, the all embracing, ever pervasive remedy

seems sometimes so far out of my reach,

and unless I gather my strengths together,

to teach myself how to fly,

I will reside in the shadows of my past,

consumed by regret, plagued by unrealized dreams,

crushed by the heaviness of being,

and defeated by the lethargy of inactivity.

I have B.A.'s in Psychology, and English; and, a certificate in psychophysical re-education; at current, I am exploring my third area of academic interest - ecology. My spiritual journey, through many transitions, culminated in taking the yoke of Heaven upon myself.
