Inside of Me – Poem

starInside of me, and each of us,
Is a craftsman, a poet and a scientist.
A willer, a feeler and a thinker.
A runner, a lover and a mathematician.

And each aspect beautiful in its own right:
The dancer alive on the dance floor;
The singer lost in emotion;
The historian lost in a book.

Three paths to bliss have I
And three paths to freedom.

And each man in me needs equal energy
Lest my being become unsteady.

The scientist with no heart is an evil villain;
The poet alone will starve to death
And the craftsman needs beauty to build.

The artistry of the heart
Brings compassion to head and hands

And allows me

To be

Fully

me.
