The Way Back

‘You'll never step in the same river twice, '
the future now the past

Motion the only constancy,
beyond all time to last

You will never see the mountain,
by staring in its face

Perspective shorn and vision torn,
its image out of place

You'll never look into your soul,
while outside glancing in

Its essence what you're running from
—whose gateway leads to Him

Comments about The Way Back by Kurt Philip Behm

    This poem is laid out interestingly in couplets, but the rhyme scheme is quatrains. Oh, well, the meaning of the poem is clear and the imagery is commanding. Nice work, Kurt.
