"Élan Vital" - by Suzanne M. Kelly
"ÉLAN VITAL, translated (Fr) "Vital Impetus" is an Epic poem that expresses my view of the story of Man, his Creator. his evolutionary continuance and his connection to All That Is. In my search for the truth, I have walked to the end of many a precipice and looked out over the valley of belief that lay below. Each time if I looked long enough, I found among the bramble a flower of truth, beauty and goodness. In every valley of belief that I crossed, I took with me a seed of its enlightenment, and hopefully left the weeds of superstition, ignorance and ritual behind. Over many years those seeds of truth have grown into a personal understanding of mind, matter, energy and spirituality. I've organized them into a modern day Iliad, which has become my story of God and man - and the evolution of man toward God, ÉLAN VITAL."
Existence follows natural laws it continues
expanding in spite of the flaws
For all exist in time and space but our times of
existence are not held in place
As Time can't be lost and space can't be found,
to each dimension nothing is bound
For everything is nothing and nothing's repressed
where all are contained and all manifest...
Truth is not a word or explanation per se
But an extension of Deity that each man must weigh
Then acceptance exerted oppresses fear
And the boundaries of infinity become increasingly near
As is all of nature, all of man,
All possibility, all time in one span! smk
