Life Created Equal - Poem by Elaine Oxamendi Vicet

Life Created Equal
All persons have the ability to-do.
But not everyone has the will to become

What does one mean by that?

The will to become takes
Energy
Tenacity
Courage
Engagem ent
Fight-conflict
Drive
Success
All the familiar words to become

But many instead
Watch, wait, complain, placate
And be…. A part of the system, situation, crowd
Net-mass.

You want to-stand-to stand out
Stand up
Stand tall
Stand right

To become
Not be
But BECOME
That person the inner being was intended to be

Because not being
In the state of becoming
Is simply being in the state of the one to
Follow, to sometimes lead
Other beings
But not really living the
Real meaning of your
Purpose reality.
