    The Deepest Part of Me

    What I see
    blindly pleas
    what I smell
    does compel
    me to believe
    that all
    of consequence
    is physical.

    What I hear
    does endear
    what I touch
    pulls much
    my heart toward
    all that
    my senses tell
    is material.

    What I taste
    gives feast
    what I feel
    makes real
    to my soul
    that all
    I consume
    only matters.

    What blindness!
    What deafness!
    What blandness!
    What madness!

    I failed to perceive
    the deepest part of me that
    reaches beyond
    body, soul, and mind
    touches eternity and divinity.
    It is my awakened spirit.
