Poem - The Acts

“The Acts” is a poem about the commonality of the human experience. The outwardly directed results may differ from person to person. It’s too easy to condemn the motivation, such as the happiness of a loving relationship, for the lack of reference to the outcomes.

The Acts

The acts I perform in pursuit
of the core of who I truly am
are secondary to what’s behind
franker realms that define

the spectrums direct how I bend
observing beauties in my world
this is a filter for God’s grace
the executed shaded thus

these outward deeds may conflict
with the norms of other folk
even as the source is same
prompting acts they dismay

truest love observes the heart
affections lead the physical
feelings prompting what then trails
affirming passions felt within.
