if it’s all about me, it’s gotta be you

to ascend, negate
always aim for the other
the other is safety of perfection
without, there’s sin
the weight of accountability
your order will fall in rank
There is no new order
balance hasn’t precedent
negative descent has your ascent
lest you or yours be known
this is not acceptable
with that may come enlightenment
who then will that ascend?

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?
