Let your Gifts guide You

What is the expression of the soul in flight
That it must overcome every day and night
A new terror that seizes it by the hand
A terror that chastises gifts as contraband.
Why should the heart skip a beat when it sees
Another human being? Why falter to your knees
When that same said being is a woman?
Tell me why it is that you do this my son?
Yet these two things, the terror and the skip,
Will not blow together as sails on a ship.
Necessarily you must choose, the on or the other,
Else you shall be stuck in limbo for another
Thousand years or more while you struggle to find
Your purpose; and those that care to unwind
The mystery of what happened will only laugh
That you missed your chance, at the aftermath.
