We hide from who we really are,
yet if only we were brave,
we’d discover what we really are;
is all we ever need.
We’d answer every call for love,
whatever package was delivered,
so longing feelings could subside,
along with hate and anger and greed.
Only then the tides’ll truly turn,
gently forming something grand,
cause the power is and always was,
forever in your hand.
These are some words I wrote after a spiritual awakening experience.
Are my eyes open when my eyes are open?
You might think this silly but
we don’t know until we do.
I didn’t know for a long long time
til then one day I did. I saw
a secret world which lay
just beneath the surface.
Colours appeared from colours,
as if hidden in plain sight,
but now awash with sparkled light
I could smell and taste and hear them.
My eyes were opened with radiant sight
as love burst through every pore,
I’d risen from my sleepy state
and life was now upon me.
