Wading through a mass of lies,

Shaking off the old dust.

It is the body that dies,

And goes back to the crust.

 

Waking up, and rethinking,

Grabbing onto something new.

Stopping the self from sinking,

Holding on to what is true.

 

What a great feeling now

No disturbances any more.

I'm not reeling now,

I'm steady and that's for sure.
