AN EXAMINED LIFE – by Kurt April (October 2014)


Competing orientations

Uncertain outcomes

Ambiguous demands

Simply thinking about things

Before acting

With unconscious action

Does it merit your existence?

Mere existence, convention

Not enough

Dragged by others’ dramas

Rendered less-than by others’ desires

Swallowed by the shadow urgings of custom and simplicity

A worthy life

Surely must be examined, observed

Actions must be thought through

Consciously and purposefully



Transcends instinct

Call your muse

Of moral courage, of values, of principles

Of Power

Of Being


No accusing witness

No restraining hand

Freedom, through considered choice


Service, through examined life
