taken from my book, "Position The Thought"

Reality Will Show Itself


My purpose is to climb out of the box

__on my head

And not wind up dead from it

How I'll get do such

Is completely up to God

Thee enduring suffering I went thru

Has been a road of hardship

__and trials

From the moment I ran around

Facing the death all around

To the mesh of desires

__of lustful wants

____and needs that can't be met

I hang my head

For, my cat left Earth for Heaven

I only wish she was still here

Never wanted more of her

Ever before

My mind remains a battlefield

Where thoughts get shout at

And blasted out of conscious awareness

The more I think

The less I am aware

__of the here and now

And the less I think

The more I get to feel

__what is really going on

Yet, the struggle continues

And reality is not revealing itself

__just yet

So the journey is still going on

Leading me to the calm

__and quiet place

____that lies somewhere inside of me

A place of beauty

An essence of spirit

__of the perfect atmosphere

Radiant with thee energy of dreams


____and able to have in mind

Where I can linger
