Introspective Satori



With closed eyes Peering over the edge  slipping to my demise,

Chained to my coffin upside down,
from up top by godsend to my surprise,

Faithful intuition inwards to make it upwards I've been slow to realize,

Light through the darkened skies, shattered the veil upon my disguise,

I'm impressed and amortized,
to a spirit that's truly galvanized,

I feel gravity pull as my soul is certified,
My fears normalized that were once oversized,

Mind from body feeling baptized,
to slip the grip of what agonized,
Spirit growing wings like butterflies,

Unchained, I'm falling where I'm once paralyzed,
Guided by Magi because of tranquility revitalized,
Catching guided winds aloft by inner spirit  revolutionized,
Following the light towards home, I'm no longer ostracized,

Leaving the shell falling to hell I sympathize,
My old life behind soaring to my true prize,

No longer contained within lies cutting all ties,
Following the words of the wise I'm opening my eyes,
No longer pint size going counter clockwise,
Forever oversized, soaring upwards deputized,

I've surpassed the cliffs, ready to ionize,
The light pulls and the darkness cries,
The white lies expelling darkness subsides,
The clouds part seeing a path that's mesmorized,
Free of sin unchained to the shell humanized,
Above the clouds I am now vaporized.
