Rising to enlightenment
Is an oxymoron
For enlightenment
Is to see and know and feel
The truth behind all things
And to be at peace with this truth
And all it brings
To rise implies an overcoming
To overcome what? I ask
To rise above what fall?
And accomplish what task?
Would be to simple an answer
All would be to complex
Yet both and neither seem the truth
And so that my friend is the answer best
So rise to enlightenment and see
All sights there are to see
And know
All truths there are to know
And feel all sensations to feel
And be at peace,
And go with peace.
