The Blindness of Purpose



The blindness of purpose
Too busy to see
All that's around
All that is me

The blindness of duty
The persistence of flight
My animal self
Prepared to fight

Preparing its territory
Preparing its pride
My animal self
Took me for a ride

Awakening now from this
Primal ado*
I see the safety
Sun shining through

Waiting to warm me
Waiting to show
There to surround me with
Opportunity's flow

A neighborhood rich with
What I adore
Easy and open
Welcoming and slow.

-EVE Featherstone
