I Look Outside

“I Look Outside” – a poem by Gregg Hake

I look outside
from within―
feeling, not seeing,
accepting, not judging,
giving, not taking.

All beyond me
is of me
and I of it―
for all is one,
parts of a whole.

One body
of one mind,
separate but distinct―
conjoined in purpose,
discrete in action.

I am of the sea
I am of the skies above
I am of the earth
I am of the stars
Inside and out, I am with all.
