Never shall I forget the kindness of souls,
the interest and connection to this life’s purpose,
and in them rests my hope,
that people find a better way to live,
not bound to the slavery of the capitalist society
but rather pursuing self-understanding
and a more spiritual life.
Complacent, a world writhing in pain,
happy to remain with what it knows,
rather than explore the deep caverns of self,
the endless possibilities of life,
not limited by narcissistic people
ruled by wealth and personal agendas,
but free to discover nature’s secrets.
Always been a broken soul,
living moment to moment,
a pin cushion for the malicious,
the bane of lies and deceit
and the blame of those without responsibility,
and as I follow my purpose, I bleed,
from those relentless wounds, unhealed.
Yet pain just becomes calm,
bleeding just a cleansing of blood,
when the body wanes but the mind is strong,
and truth resounds within every bone
and morsel of flesh,
as if reborn into the light from the darkness,
and in that state, I live more, for what remains.
There is an emptiness,
a hole within for what used to be,
but more is to come and I shall not regret
for all those, I’ve known and cherished on TCE,
but my words fall on deaf ears,
and the pain of a slow decline is palpable,
so I must take leave to find my next step.
Dipping ones toe into water is not swimming,
and one cannot achieve half-heartedly,
so great ideas fall to new ones,
and life evolves in time, at our request,
so I wish my friends here well, with all the love I have,
and hope life is exactly what you make it,
in every dream manifest.
