I see you now

When to the nether worlds you elope
When on the lands beneath you tread
I see you, sore and forlorn

You are freedom and you are fire
Why then have you forgotten your place
Among gods, bathed in divinity

You are an explorer, a pioneer
Why then do you not rise with the sun
Shine bright like the stars in the breathless sky

When hope pervades your heart
When bliss isn’t far
I see you, eager and spirited

To that which you can be
To worlds you cannot fathom in the dark
Be the light, be the light

Rest not until you are awake
Fear not until you are alive
I see you now, I see you now

Manduka!

Creeping up unto my brain, over my icy rigid veins,
Raging thoughts so bestial and foul, my heart is marred of black stains.
O free me from this pain, free me from this feral beast,
Or It’s sooner to the day this blight shan’t be of any, in the least!
Kind in deeds, in soul and shape, resting with Gods, I’ll say,
End is nigh, think right and true, or you won’t see another day.
Darkness, not light, greets you in death, if you’re just a Crooked ol’ man.

The Tale of our spin

The moon, up and about
when time hit its note
pale and abstruse he stood
his demeanor, wise and kingly.

but there he was, and then wasn’t
dawn it was, as the clock ticked on
And thus he came,
eponym to the billion or so.

The Sun in his chariot,
golden and glowing, smiled down
on his nine minions, for now.
everything was happy and glorious

so near he stands now,
swelling on his own fodder.
to act paladin, and yet that
look, savage and baleful

for without the cloth
on our mother’s bosom,
the yin unbalanced, he flares
his ire, and his life, lurks.

the existence itself, an infant
for now he isn’t pervert enough
but surely, we have misunderstood
for our father, isn’t a bloody cheat.

is it all a fabric woven before?
seemingly incapable of adjustments?
oh please do answer,
the reason of the system.
