Poetry – Martin Squibbs – Natures Permission

Natures Permission

A void at birth, a mind in waiting
Just eternal infinity, without inflating
Emotions flowing with a Universe sensed
Experiences settle, as yet unfenced

Yet now the mind reveals some form
In pasts of truth memories adorn
And bring with them hopes yet to come
And so we plan what must be done

Then struggle from these lives confined
As building dreams of others’ lives, we find
And fight for futures of better causes
With battles of wills and other forces

For what we fight and protect so dear
‘With truth and knowledge, the weapons clear
With compassion and justice our guiding vision
Towards joy in balance, within nature’s permission.
