Glimpse

What am I supposed to do now with this beating heart,
this pulse and cellular presence of being,
with this life that is not given but awakened?

Seeking to discern the truth,
what is the filter and what is the veil?

In this ever shifting stream of mind,
struggling to find a foundation
and realizing how perilous the journey
I wonder, how I did I sleep for so long?…
