within this world

.
I live within this world
Within dirt and dust
Light and dark
Fluid and fire
Within us all

I hanker not after harmony –
A perfect point of perennial stasis
Where all is happy and peaceful forever
.
(Like death) –
.
But for change, for evolution and appropriate but arbitrary sensory adaption
For life amidst this ever-ending toil and turmoil
.
I live to learn to accept the flow
To recognize and embrace the power that pulsates throughout
Everything and everybody and everywhere
Defined not by class or sex or race or breed or genus or type
Not divided by intellect or motive or wealth or value to you and me
.
So maybe I will kick and shout
Or sit alone still
Or dance staccato in fashionable time with you
Knowing all is fine in the world
With or without my intervention
