396 – Focus

Reset, reboot, recharge…

Flowing streams
Of fiery darkness
Dancing underneath
Your eyelids.

A rusty knife
Carves a deep trench
Between your heart
And soul.

Enlightenment
Tiptoes carefully around
The jagged edges
Of reality.

This is not an exit!

The spinning wheel
Beneath your feet
Gives and takes
No quarter.

Balance becomes
A distant memory
As you vainly try
To stay afloat.

Stand up!
Cries your own voice
From the distant bridge
Above the rushing waters.

Suddenly,
The water becomes
Ankle-deep
And quiet.

It’s all
In the mindset.
Laughs the distant
Inner voice.

In the end,
Everything becomes
A simple matter
Of perspective.
