Deviations From The Norm

Robert loughran 1962 (Ireland)



Are we concretized towards certainty
Small deviations of the norm.
Made smaller by every belief,
any port in a storm.

Are we still animals hunted,
are we still millennia behind,.
modern life , technological advance
Have we still the monkeys mind

And yet there is giving among great hardship,
some order in prison camps,
perhaps by looking into the darkest holes,
we may see in their humanity, a chance.

IF the realization can form among us,
of the potential that exists..
That in every moment waits an act of creation,
that we can be much more than this,


.
