Will As A God

 

Written by Susi Bocks @ I Write Her

 

we all ponder what is truth
not one of us with the same outlook
theories or hypothesis’
as varied as the lives which surround us

 

haven’t we all witnessed people
who have such a zest that life never seems to end
and have written a multitude of stories over the norm
possessing a zeal which feels absent in us
accomplishments being even fewer

 

and those at the end of a relatively long life saying “it’s enough”
with a need or a want to move on
having endured so much hardship and pain
just wanting it over with

 

or those who just plod along
living relatively simple
but meaningful, loving lives
contributing a harmony of sorts

 

if god is life and life is nature and nature dictates our decisions
then maybe it’s the sheer will to remain alive
that what drives us should guide us
deciding our ultimate purpose or names this so-called god we want to prove

 

this belief of having a much-needed pull
for when the chips are down
something we engage with
when it’s all too much

 

i would submit that sheer will is supreme
this internal force is a pressure to endure
and can be what rules us
wow, what a concept to get behind

 

they say you can manifest what you want
yeah, but not without effort
i would submit you are your own god
and that god is will

    I would submit that “you are your own god” depends (for better or worse) on who “you” are and how you impact others. For example, Donald Trump is his own god, and his impact on others has hardly been altruistic and life-affirming (to put it generously).
