Only That Which 'Is'

Every step I have come to place,
I have consciously known of their taking.
For anyone to perceive,
I have been absent with my senses on leave...
Had to have been made to believe this,
Since only one life I live to appreciate the air I breathe.

Unafraid to adventure to experience the unknown,
I have tripped over obstacles to others not shown.
With a doing to eclipse those basking in delusions.
I refuse to make excuses with pretentions to dispense.
I never felt my life was a wasted experience.

Moaning through aches and pains to groan felt and real,
I have learned complaining was done alone to conceal.
And taking time to heal I determined to do on my own.
To get up again unafraid to adventure,
Every step I have come to place with a facing again to do...
To prove a truth with a witnessing the strength of my faith.

And for anyone to perceive,
I have been absent with my senses on leave...
Had to have been made to believe this,
Since only one life I live to appreciate the air I breathe...
To please only THAT which 'is' with deeds to pursue and do.
And has already proven powerful enough to approve my existence.
