Ambition Rules the World

Ambition
rules the world
but works
through men.

Agnostic
as to its use
it seeks
only to burn.

Striving
for satisfaction
of the soul’s yearning
to be whole.

Trapped
at first
in the need
to survive
and be.

Moving
upward
after being
toward movement
and desire.

Then
onward towards
the self as
separate from
the whole.

An
ambitious few
learn the lessons
of love.

Recognizing
the self
as both separate
and a part
of the whole.

Ambition
rules the world
but not through
the most ambitious
of men.

Mankind
is ruled
by the
remedial few.

Yearning
to be whole
yet unwilling
to love.

Insane
with thwarted ambition
the rulers of men
move outward
but not upward.

Reigning
as mad kings
upon thrones
of unfulfilled desire.

Ancient Mind Filling Infant Eyes

Ancient mind
filling
infant eyes.

Ragging
against
impotent flesh.

Feeling wrongness
from first
breath.

Letting loose
a primal scream
of the alienated
and dispossessed.

Losing memory
but not
grief.

Mourning
for what
should be.

Waiting
to awaken
and be free.

In Silence

In silent
surrender
I purify
my soul.

In silence.

I cleanse
my mind
and open
my heart.

Finding myself.

Formless
creature
of the
now.

In silence.

I grow
virtue
and god.

Finding myself.

Timeless
creature
of love
and bliss.

In silence.

I vanquish
darkness
with the
presence of
light.

Finding myself.

Awareness
in an
awakening
world.
