ULTIMATELY..

Ultimately,
It is not about who you say you are
Or the face you present on stage,
Shining in the spotlight,
Not the clothes you wear
Or the smile you flash.

Ultimately,
It is about how deeply
You can share the depth of your soul,
Feel the pain, wonder and grief of love,
Offering friendship, not foe,
In the face of adversity.

Ultimately,
It is not about the close-knit cliques
Clinging to each other,
For we face birth and death alone
Without the approval of others.

Ultimately,
It is not about the words you say,
But the words you truly mean,
About your humanity,
Fairness and openness.

Ultimately,
Competition breeds separation,
Judgement creates contempt,
Jealousy turns love sour,
Egoism creates ignorance.

Ultimately,
The path we travel may be steep,
It may be rocky,
If we help each other,
The journey becomes lighter and brighter.

Ultimately,
We’ve got to be brave,
Walk the road less travelled,
Listening to our inner calling,
Unique to us.

Ultimately,
It is about leaving the world a better place
Than you found it,
By following your dreams,
To offer kindness and wisdom.

Ultimately,
Your life is for you alone to walk,
Each breath,
Each step sacred to your being…

ULTIMATELY..

Artist's Description

This just came to me when considering what is most important to me in my life and what I experienced about humanity where I live.What is it we wish to leave behind when we depart this earth?There is a lot of talk these days about ‘authenticity’, but what is truly ‘authentic?’
