Vigil 

implies watchfulness.
Anyone tring to attain perfection
is faced with various obstacles in life
which tend to sidetrack him. Here, therefore, I mean
watchfulness against elements that might be destructive 
from within or without. 


John Coltrane


There are forces that will move against you
even though the world is yours. You must watch for them,
all ways, even though you should not have to. They will move

in ways you will not know,
for you are pure, & their movement
is not as yours is, straight & direct, as you move

all ways through the world. Oh they will strike you
as you move to grow, they will knock you down,
they will kick you in the face & smile,

they will have you understand
that the world is not yours, it is theirs they say, & you will
not know why they would have you die a

death like theirs, no, you will not come to
understand them, & they will keep at you. They will call you
their enemy, even though you know not

what an enemy is, you are not bent, you are straight,
straight & open to their blows, you cannot know
that they get their kicks that way, you go your own way

& it is good, it is only natural that you do, I don t try
to set standards of perfection
for anyone else. I do feel

everyone does try to reach
his better self, his full potential, & what that consists of
depends on each individual. Whatever that goal is,

moving toward it does require vigilance. 
& you will watch for them,
you will be vigilant,

because you have to. You do what you have to. You are a meat
creature, moving in the world. You will move
as you have to move,

& they will move to stop you. You can not be stopped. They do not
know that, & they will move against you. Watch for them,
& be strong. They have the

world to lose. The world is yours.
Move in it as you wish,
& be strong. Yes. Be strong.
