Falling Upward

The world
is falling
apart.

But we
are falling
upward.

Chaos
reigns in
public places.

But we harbor
peace in
private moments.

Hatred
shouts from
on high.

But we embody
love from
below.

The world
is falling
apart.

But we
are falling
upward.

Destroyer of Worlds

Behold
I am Shiva
destroyer
of worlds.

Bringer
of the
dawn.

I stomp
my feet and
worlds are
reborn.

Liberation
through
destruction.

I dissolve
your illusions
desires
and ignorance.

Rebirth
through
death.

I dance
betwixt
this world
and the next.

Renewal
through
decay.

Behold
I am Death
destroyer
of worlds.

Your Soul is too Beautiful

Your soul
is too beautiful
for this work.

Put it away.

Brother
you deserve
better.

Put it down.

Sister
you are lighter
than this darkness

Put it away.

You are not
the things
you have done.

Put them down.

Your soul
is too beautiful
for this world.

The World Needs Saving

The world
needs saving
but not from
you or I.

It needs saving
but not from your
horror filled gaze.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show the way.

The world
needs saving
but not from
our broken hearts.

It needs saving
but not from our
anxious protest.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to be a different way.

The world
needs saving
but not from your
sweet soul.

It needs saving
but not by
you or I.

You didn’t come
to save the world
only to show
how to be the way.

 

I Yearn to Live Awake

Awake
in the
dreams
of a
former self.

I walk
in the
shadow
of an
unconscious
life.

Wearing
a self
that
no longer
fits.

Burdened
by debts
underwritten
be a child.

Collateralized
with a
life.

I renounce
this world
and its
tawdry
forms.

But it
will not
renounce
me.

Trapped
in the
dreams
of a
sleeping child.

I yearn
to live
awake.

I yearn
to be
free.
