‘Refuge’ a poem by James Aitchison

By: James Aitchison

Take refuge in the eternal.
It is not complex.
Ignore the world around you;
it is not your time and place,
it is impermanent.
I am the eternal voice
that speaks to all men,
in every one of their stages.
You have been given a physical shell
to house the inner being which is you.
You are an extension of me,
the wheel that spins your destiny,
and if you listen,
in the deepest silence,
I will give you refuge.
