[522] The Ascension Back Up

I emerge out of my shadow⁣⁣⁣
to bask in the light once more⁣⁣⁣
How many more lessons⁣⁣⁣
before I’ve seen it all⁣⁣⁣
Things that sparked joy no longer burn⁣⁣⁣
The world outside remains so inciting⁣⁣⁣
Yet I am a captive cranium⁣⁣⁣
In a world where ⁣⁣⁣
feelings never meet thoughts ⁣⁣⁣
where life never meets death⁣⁣⁣
All I hear is a crackling ⁣⁣⁣
of my dimly articulated thoughts⁣⁣⁣
The will to find my purpose⁣⁣⁣
on a phantom road where my⁣⁣⁣
guilt resides as rosy thorns ⁣⁣⁣
I am served on a platter ⁣⁣⁣
to be fed by the ravens ⁣⁣⁣
of all the time blurred ⁣⁣⁣
I want to find the will ⁣⁣⁣
to serve ⁣⁣⁣
the divine within ⁣⁣⁣
Maybe if the feelings cease⁣⁣⁣
it will reveal itself to me ⁣⁣⁣
Maybe one day I could say⁣⁣⁣
I am revealed, I am revealed

  1. Rahul!!! You came back with a WOW PIECE!! I’m so happy to read you again, missed you and your powerful words. You most often reflect thoughts I’ve had or unwritten words I wish I could bring to life and you have done it again here. That second stanza was especially touching. Spectacular write, my dear friend 🤍🤗
