Fear stokes that mighty, wretched ego,
Blame to wear suffering’s glorious crown;
Hatred’s bowels, bellows the flames of blame,
Anger’s rage to beat the humble spirit down.
While diminished light, upon darkness gaze,
Remembrance of vanished dreams of dawn;
Keeping those rusted, old relics of regret,
Dawning the day of dusk, tending the elder’s lawn.
Mourning the winter’s rain, upon summer’s reign,
Wither upon autumn’s breeze, born again spring’s dream;
Withholding love’s embrace, guilt of ego’s desire,
Broken into never again, bracing soul shattering scream.
Tears broken, scattered to dust of never-morrow,
Reaped by the grim winds, away the sorrow blows;
Silent so loud for none to see, below the surface waiting,
Knowing the might beyond flesh, the power of souls.
Ignited within doubt, to overcome ego’s dark dream,
Enlightened knowledge abound, exploding soul surrounded;
Self controlled expression, beyond compassion of kind,
Ties to the infinite divine, simple miracles astounded.
Shriveled vines produce no wine, yet fruit simply sweet,
Revived, renewed, trusting patience of ever growing time;
Not to doubt knowing, soul recognizes spirit’s blessings,
Soul never ends, infinite recycling of energy sublime.
