We find it so difficult to comprehend
The nature of love, and so we pretend.
We do not show where we are weak
We hide our differences, we constantly seek.
So lost we become by our way
We feel so much with little to say
This suffering will only continue to grow
Unless we admit that we don’t really know
The essence of life running through our veins
Will not be seen when fear is at the reins
The answer is clear but so hard to know
Letting go is the only way we will ever grow.
Open yourself up to all that you are
We feel that God is something afar
Though the heart is ready to receive,
While we look the other way to believe
We are not a thing to be controlled
We cannot understand by being told
Eventually we must come to that place
Where nothing remains but divines grace
Freedom is the closest word to describe
That space remaining when by heart, we abide.
Our care is our gift to life
We abstain for the game of strife
That which we fear is only an illusion
Though we continue to create this confusion
Avoiding the responsibility of being free
There is only truth, only heart, only one to see
Separation is the disease of the mind
Seek not gain but spirit & you will find
This merry go round is self propelled
By the ideas to which you’ve held
Freedom is not something we create
It is already the case-just open the gate
Certainly there is work to be done before
Imaginary we only need open the door
The process is without effort but will ask
For a most difficult & effortless task
To love and learn with others at your side,
Relationship is the space where the heart abides.
