We Carry Whole Worlds Within Us - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

We are always both so known and unknown.
So knowing someone deeply is such a treasure.
It opens the sky of all time.
It lets the song come out of the sea.
It lets the heart to be touched by another.

We carry whole worlds within us
As we brush by each other in supermarket.

The entire drama of life churns
in our blood as we rush underground
to catch a train in the crowd.

We shall never stop breaking
our own trail up the mountain.
For only by daring to be ourselves
can we deeply know others.

    There’s a whole world inside us. For some, our world is wide open and free for everyone to see. For others, our world is more private and reserved. All of us have things inside of us, stories, events, people who have greatly shaped the people the we are today. Thank you for sharing this nice poem with us Tony. (Report) Reply
