Reconcile yourself to self,
The messy, muddled you,
Limited in leverage,
Unlimited in view.

There is no better vantage point
From which a soul might see,
Nor better little porcelain pot
In which a soul might be.

Being is a miracle,
And you, the miraclee,
And every moment of your life
Is eternity.

And everything you come across,
And everything within,
Packages the infinite,
Being without end.
