No Longer Serves Us – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon




“Transformation literally means going beyond your form.”  Wayne Dyer

No Longer Serves Us

Profound mysteries don’t always come
in those cliched places of illusion,
domesticated by expectations
and such finite things until,
like Pavlov’s dogs we hesitate,
tired of salivating for finitude,
glimpsing a painful revelation,
that the place where we are
no longer serves us,
throwing us into ambiguity
and uncertainty,
where alone
ecstasy thrives.
