Our Sacred Light

Each one of us is sacred light trapped inside of flesh and bone

Caught in the mind’s illusion, we feel separate and alone

Trapped in this space without awareness, flailing, grasping, falling, blind

We are empty vessels inside a prison made of mind

We’ve created certain madness that appears to be quite sane, by virtue of the masses, churches, politics and blame

But mind has told us many things to keep us grounded, maimed, and slow

As Sacred light is always light, creation made this so

The light that is inside of us is always free to grow

We need not be caught inside this hell, our fear, and insane rage

This disillusioned thinking in our minds imaginary cage

Our mind has taken hostage our ability to see

It feeds us pain and keeps us full on endless misery

But inside of each of us, we carry a bright flame

And we could leave it all behind and end this vicious pain

At some point we must ask ourselves, do we really want to live

Or do we want to stay safe and keep to ourselves the gifts we’re meant to give

We must be brave and venture into places that we fear

Those place that are inside of us we’ve buried, hidden, not endeared

So today let’s take adventure in that place within ourselves and try to give more of our hearts, for the light within us dwells

Writing for me is very cathartic and meditative. I have found it to be an outlet for inner conflict, doubt, worry, joy, love, peace, and the entire range of human emotion.
