Poem from a Marginal Mooter

Received this poem from a guy who surfs the edge of the Moot Community cyberly.


I thought I should post it, as it gives a strong sense how some are spiritually searching in our culture to get beyond theĀ nihilismĀ of our consumptive & technological culture of surface meaning …


I am reminded that many are seeking for something deeper, and hence are on a spiritual quest.



I am given the world
but lose my soul, nothing
I feast on means anything
to me just another person’s
problem, but my own.

We live in the comfort of
our own envy and aspirations
the gluttony of a mind
preoccupied with just
another person’s problem,
but my own.

I desire liberation,
full of transcendent hope
to be a full person,
connected
and not on my own.
