Agni Lord of Fire

Agni
Lord
of Fire.

Ignite
my
desire.

I am
the infinite
made flesh.

Fire
in human
form.

Master
of my
fate.

This is a Slave World

This is
a slave
world.

Everyone
is a
slave.

Especially
the
masters.

Lured
by
desire.

Driven
by
fear.

Bound by duty
attachment
and desire.

Duty
to obligations
foolishly accepted.

Attachment
to impermanence
and distractions.

Desire
for illusions
naively believed.

Though
the body
is bound.

The soul
may be
free.

Liberation
is a state
of being.

Hope No More

Souls
craving progress
is nature’s way.

But man
confused progress
with desire
and lost his way.

Chasing
mirages of hope
in a desert
of despair.

He sought
money
power and fame.

Hoping
the novelty
of experience
would still
his restless soul.

Man is more
than fleeting form
and novel desire.

More than
fathomless pits
that cannot
be filled.

All souls
crave progress
but delusion
is not the way.

Awaken
dear man
and hope
no more.

We are
shattered pieces
of the whole.

Your soul’s longing
the desire
to go home.

Faith alone
will still your soul
sate your desire
and take you home.

Ascetic of Desire

I pray neither for
power nor glory
among men.

Riches nor fame
will satisfy
my ambitious heart.

Which perceived
momentarily
reality beyond dreams.

I pray only
for liberation
from this
mundane nightmare.

My awakened soul
no longer entertained
by ephemeral dreams.

Awake
in the shell
of an unconscious life.

I renounce inwardly
the cage of delusion
built by unconscious desires.

Imprisoned by dreams
I have become
an ascetic of desire.

Praying daily
for liberation
from causality’s
plodding inertia.

Restlessness Moves Me

Restlessness
moves within me
with kinetic force.

Possessed
of its own
intentions.

Desirous
of change.

Craving
of action.

Impervious
to pleas
of satisfaction.

Moving me
in ways
I cannot
comprehend.

Propelling me
towards a life
I cannot yet
dream.

My will is free
but cannot
be still.

Restlessness
moves me.

To where
I do not
know.
