To Soar Above The Ego, Like An Eagle
Sometimes, I do not know why stuff happens;
The reason things spiral out of control,
Send me down this tunnel of despair.
It is then that I either reach out to Something Higher,
Or try to unravel the questions: “‘Why, How?”
An approach which sometimes deepen my turmoil,
And I’m not spared, as life dishes out its own pathways.
I know my needs intuitively,
But I’m constantly diverted, by cravings or desires,
Which pushes me along in a spiral of suffering,
Seemingly bringing comforts, but deafening my Soul.
I feel an ardent need to be alive;
A constant thirst, a longing to evolve, to become… somebody.
Although I’m a part of and blend into the earth,
Like the lower species and nature’s grandeur,
I aspire to go higher; deeper …to transform my baser instincts;
Seek ways to improve my worth; my inner beauty.
Come! O Lover, let us rise above this Jinxed enchantment;
To soar beyond the Ego, like an eagle,
Flapping our wings and flying, into the vastness of infinity.
