Self-Realization~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Realization of the Self” by Blake Hughes

it must have passed him by

that moment of greatness

a lifetime of waiting

for something astonishing

something that never would happen

how sad is that lifetime unlived

so much waste in the waiting

the pitiful longing

for some nonexistent arcane

remote source of self-worth

all the time unacquainted

with manifest wherewithal

held in his own two good hands

all the genuine greatness

no more than a matter of mind

an authentic assertion of will

whose reward guarantees

a deep quiet contentment
