There are times when I am aware
That I am one with the universe,
That I am more spirit than body.
That my skin and bones hold me back
From where I yearn to go and stay.
I want to have my pair of wings and
Dive down canyons at the speed of light;
Peel forth laughter that would echo down
All the various corridors of time and send
Forth vibrations of goodness and love.
Yet, I must accept the limitations I am given,
That as a mortal man, my body remains
Chained to the earth, as my mind travels
To the far reaches of the brightest stars,
So my soul can sit at the feet of Jesus.
