Liberation

andrew gonzalez

In our minds we are always free

we cannot be contained with the walls of flesh and bone mentalities

Our spirit wants to flee

will not settle for material desires

that wrap around

to bring man down

 

such an obscure attainment

to be shrouded in wealth’s raiment

void of spiritual arraignment

the pure lament

 

The soul to grow

by fire

to know

 

the burn within

sparks a flame

divine intent

is born

 

for it is without this world

a jewel is refined

 

it is within

only a diamond in the rough

 

to venture on the coals

to set foot upon the path

and never look back

 

no pity

no sorrow

 

only joy in revelation

that it is all in us

the travesties of deceit

we each must face

 

to brave the storm

to come out of the fire

a purpose to be one

 

it is not to be tread

as if it were a given

for it is open to all

 

the meek in humility

to be so called upon

to cherish all

in servitude in thought

in action each second

 

to take for granted this gift

is to be burned a thousand fold

and never shine

 

to drink of desire

of every cell

can only truth

be realized

 

in such an individual

who nurtures

his own soul

and comes to know

LOVE

 

love unblemished

untarnished

so rare

but everywhere

it is the peace

of the free

 

the liberation of the spirit

to shine forth in all it aspires

never to retire

only to return

to guide others

who make the choice

to play their turn….

 

which road will you travel

 

if you make the choice

you are there

in the center of nowhere

but where truth encircles

just waiting for the earnest

to reach out

and see accord

 

by removing the veil

layer by layer

until the light within you

can no longer be contained

 

as you took the first leap of faith

you as quickly catch the first ray

 

what you do will all be up to you

to be forever born

to be forever one

 

Amen
