 Pushed through pain
We are born
In a world shattered by chaos
We choke on the acid
Of society
burning through
Our inner being dissolves
Too young
I grabbed the ears
Of the lion
and fought to keep its jaws
Off my face
Dodging death
Next time
Won’t come
To us
The ego lies
While destiny hides

I do not know

Which way to go
I wonder who
Where and why
Am I
Crawling in the dark

I ask the stars
To shine on

my life
This time

with Infinite Compassion

I finally see
we are all
boundless in spirit
different currents
in the same river
we flow to the sea
all our joy
all our pain
one day
we leave it behind

no more mystery

I am not in my body

my body is in me.

You provide much substance for reflection in your verses, Joseph. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

I, too, love the "different currents on the same river" reference. That idea is so true. Each one of us has a different method of reaching the same end, with our Father in Heaven.

Nice work, Joseph.
