DEBT

Rebirth is repaying
Karma the currency
God the banker
When will it end we wonder

Self Realization the answer
Know yourself to ponder
Nothing else to wonder
Become one with the creator

Good and bad
Two sides of the same coin
They never meet
Until entered in the balance sheet

Discard the veil
Fake gives way
Real becomes clear
That nothing is real

The gods will answer
Only one prayer
Seeking relief from Rebirth
This however will be granted
To those who only desire
Is to keep away from other desires

Debt to the Creator
Law of Nature
Unlock the seeker
Rebirth automatically surrenders

Gratitude the first step
Forgiveness towards the other self
Compassion universal
Takes you one step closer

Removal of desires
Searching greener pastures
Momentary and transient
Pleasure seeking impermanent

Sense of doing
Achieving or failure
Taken very personal
Steps taken backward

Life teaches lessons
Answers lie in life
Learning outside life
Come back to live life
