Awakening

I AM Ashes… I AM Dust…

IT is Now I need to Remember…and to Trust…

My Sprouting Wings…to Spread and Fly…

That I AM Simply ReBirthing…and not about to die…

The Bud of My Soul…is Busting Forth…

While My Former ruler, my ego…is now Dismissed…

Replaced by a Towering Inferno…of Love & Unity…

As My Heart Explodes in Flames…and Shards of Bliss…

I Can no longer Recall…Clearly or Wholly…

My Experiences of Regret…Doubt…and Pain…

As if a Wonderful Spiritual Morphine…

Has Permeated my Soul…as well as My Veins…

Breathe…
