Parallel Universes

my world is your world
your world lives in me
through me I am you
and you know me
as you know me in you

all is new
as what is to be

Had I had what I have
I would go back to now
but it seems the world
that once was is no more
bound to me

When worlds die another is born
for its stead
there is no raising the dead
for the new does not give up
its dead
they’ve not passed
and their time has not bled

within one state of being
what is the now remains all
that was and now remains
what will be in
its infancy

the child born forever
will always be now
tomorrow a new being is
forever embed

all who are now will be
but for an instant

Poetic Sojourn


About Scott Schoffstall

I'm a relatively new poet having started in earnest 11/2010. I have sought the authentic and am still on that quest. I've diverged from the norm yet always reached for the universal. My interests were always beyond the here and now. Beyond the taste, touch, smell, hear, see. Where the mind and the spirit transcend the physical. They say perception is reality. Is it? Are we truly all there is?
