Loves Internal Presence

Everpresent is the world within me
my thoughts, my dreams, my reality

Love reverberates my soul
pressing upon my heart to let it break free
to shine in this world of doubt, heedlessness and misery;
wherein life seems to have little meaning
and death has become an exalted enterprise and intertainment

Let me soar above these shackles of continuous contagion
and mindless conformities to traditions
and doctrines of men . . .
that I might see again . . . divine light . . .
shining through the corridors of heaven,
engulfing and radiating my entire being
like a shooting star
catapulted across the black abyss
in search of its one true love
and divine destiny

For heaven has freed my soul,
my thoughts, my dreams and my reality
to the world that lives within and without,
that I may ascend into the beauty
and bounty of love's internal presence.
