To Go Beyond

To continue on the poetry theme, here is anothre poem I found recently by a guy named Nathaniel Elm. I like it alot, even though the ending might be a little harsh.

“To go beyond this moment and look
Into another, or to go beyond yourself
And find another soul, there.

To go beyond what is missing and discover
How much you really have, or to learn what you have
Been given and know that it is yours

To go beyond this time and look upon the next and wonder
When you will get there, or to go beyond and do what
There still is left to do

To go beyond and think about when there is not
Want, or to go beyond and take another step
And ensure that no others have want, too

To go beyond this present pain and think
About when it was safe, or to go beyond and dream
Of peace and bring it back again

To go beyond and run the extra mile when you know
You didn’t have to, or to go beyond the call of duty
When others do just their part

To go beyond and heal the rift, close
The gap and mend the wounds, or to go beyond and
Wait until the storm has passed without giving in.

This is self-discipline”

    Nathaniel Elm is one of my favorite poets! Perhaps not as well-known as others, but I really like his work.

    Thanks for sharing!
