Common Dough

As humans we create our lives
by blending both the truth and lies.
And from this mixture we become
unique and independent sons.

Confused and all alone we fight
to build the dream that is our life.
Perhaps what needs again be said
is that this living, tangled web

has at its core the common dough.
It doesn’t matter where we go.
The dough will ever always rise
and fortify our human lives.

Provide the strength so we endure
despite the frosted crust that lures
us ever onward, up, and out:
away from Source, and into doubt.

For here we see our separateness:
our talk, our walk, our differences.
Yet from within the union calls
inviting us to go beyond

and reconnect the human dots
before we hurt and leave to rot
another soul at depth the same
as we, ourselves. We share the name

of Truth, of Love, of inner Light
that’s ever present, ever bright.
Common dough which nurtures all
who dare respond to Spirit’s call.
