The Essence of Existence
Thus what is the true worth of
The travails of human existence …
Nought, but the ultimate inheritance
Of the blessed assurance of everlasting life
Through the perfect and absolute
Redemption of our Lord, Jesus Christ
Without which, no real value is added
To the fragility of this mortality.
Seek ye eternal salvation.

Do not castigate yourself endlessly
Nor subject yourself to constant reproach, or
Incessantly scathing personal recrimination,
For, but imperfect is our life journey, and
Blemished certain trails we sometimes pursue.
Yet know ye, that even the stalwart and ramrod
Of disposition are indeed still malleable, but
Shielded with the distinction of determination
Resolve not to disintegrate under the scrutiny, and
Limelight of the flawed existence of mortality.
Rather, cloak thyself with clear and piercing insight
To acknowledge frailties and experiences therefrom.
Arm thyself with the refuge of wisdom, to ensure
That thy perspective is unveiled in assessment
Of the failings that attend within thine existence.
Dwell not on the limitations or infirmities of the mould
Nay, courage most ardently seek, sufficient grace to
Forgive thyself embrace, while nurturing steadfastly the
Peace that elevates the spirit and dissipates confusion,
And with the confidence of maturity acquired through
Lessons, advance beyond the stagnation of shortcomings
To forge onward with confidence and enduring hope.
