Our Essence

Please listen to the music as it enhances the experience

The Cocteau Twins – Essence

What is our Essence?
Do you know what that might mean?
Is it our soul, our core, our center?
Is it something that can be seen?

Is our Essence transcendent
Beyond ourselves and our being?
Or is it coupled with our body,
In the flesh, beneath our seeing?

Is it breathing, is it sleeping,
Is it quiet, silent dreaming?
Could it be flying, or emoting
Feelings of a peaceful floating.

In looking for an answer.
Some ponder these deep thoughts
With the hope of finding one true path.
To places others may have sought.

Perhaps we already know that place,
Our own life in need of transience.
To know oneself could be the start
Of finding our own true Essence. . .

Artist's Description

Do you ever wonder?
Do you ponder what is or might be?
Do you want to know?
What could be our own reality
. . .

I sometimes do just that. . .
Will there come a time when
I stop the constant questions
It happens now & then
. . .

but it doesn’t last long . . . . hee hee

Sometimes my thoughts get the better of me and writing them is a release….
