Since the begining of time
Humankind have been plagued
By one eternal  question
Why are we here?

Philosophers, teachers, and wise man
Have extensively probed this enigma
Many have sought answers through religion
Or amongst numerous literary works comprised

Man looks for a divine God
From the depths of the oceans
To the zenith of the mountain tops
Or the loftiness of the clouds above

Some continue to seek, others however have
Discovered the most rewarding search
Is the internal journey inward, not outward...

What lies within is our connection
To a vast universal power
Waiting to be tapped into,
It is God's ultimate medium
The free flowing power of Love

When we are uninhibited to explore this wonder
Then may we comprehend that each one of us
Have our own unique purpose here
And how we align with the greater blueprint
Of humanity in this world

Once we unearth what is inside
So shall we find the unity
Amid the mountain top
And what lies upon the oceans apex

There is a reason why the earthbound
Tree's branches stretch towards the sky
Everyday, we will come closer to soaring
And becomming the Butterfly
