What's This About? - Poem by David Whalen

Can you hear it?
You can if you listen
Can you see it?
Only if you open your eyes

Can you feel it?
You can if you reach out and touch
Can you trust it?
Only if you tell no lies

Can you smell it?
You can with inhalation of breath
Can you love it?
Only without reservation

Can you release it?
Only with unfettered freedom
Can you save it?
Only with sincere salvation

Can you do it?
Only with unselfish effort
Can you love it?
Only by giving your heart

Can you describe it?
not in words, only images in your mind
Can you explain it?
Only by setting emotions apart

Can you decipher this poem?
You can…to your liking or leanings
Can it be, that all who read me
Will ascribe to it… different meanings?
