The End of This Needing to Be Something

1

They taught you that
The world was real
And that you aren’t

So you created
A system of beliefs
Based around that

You prioritized
The material world
Over your own heart
(And failed miserably
Thank God)

The heart can’t be
Bought with trinkets
Now you know

So take back
Your precious
Attention from
Irrelevant things
Distractions
Desires
Borrowed fears
These were
Never yours

Pull it back
Inside you
Where it belongs
Where it can find
Your true
Unknowable
Unlimited
All-knowing
All-loving
Self

The Real One

You will see that
This world has always been
Unreal
No matter how much
You wanted it
To be otherwise
You will cry about that
I know
But this revelation
Will answer
All your questions

Funny, isn’t it?
You had to lose the world
To find your Self
Only to discover
The world is
Inside of you
And it was
Only real
Because
You were
Here to
Make it so
