What propels us?

What propels you today?
What old and outdated notions,
what rusty fantasies
and moss-ridden shoulds
have you strapped on
to drive you ever forward
on a path you are no longer
even sure you would have chosen?
Do you ever pause to drift a bit,
or even to consider
dropping that consumptive engine?
What if you let it fall away,
take out your oars -- or better yet
raise your sails to catch the wind
and soar on the breath of Spirit?
