I caught a glimpse
of what John saw—
A reality in which I was not
pulled by what I’d rather be doing
Nor pushed by what I had to do.
I had no fear.
I had no desires—all needs were met.
I wasn’t anxious, nervous,
I felt peace and calm
and pure individuality.
No one was out of reach.
I had no questions.
The vision was a powerful flash
that stayed with me.
Was this a time yet to come?
It is a present possibility.
