Look Within

(Loosely Translated and Paraphrased from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. – Owen)

Look within,
And never let
The uniqueness or
Value of anything
Escape your notice.

Everything changes,
But everything eventually
Comes together,
Or, if it is meant to,
Disperses.

There is a sense that governs things,
And it understands itself,
What it is doing,
And what and whom it acts upon.

The best revenge
Is avoiding
Becoming like
The person who wronged you.

We are never injured
By the truth,
But, rather,
By trying to avoid it.

Owen "Beleaguered" Servant (a/k/a Sibelius Russell) writes poetry mostly, with an occasional pause to have a seizure.
