GO WITHIN WHEN YOU CAN’T GET OUT


Strip me of my possessions and my name
the only thing you can’t take away-
is my inner world of heaven that stays the same.
This is where I go from within.
also my imagination when things get grim.
That is where all sages and saints went
when they were ostracized from society
for society is judgmental and hell bent.
Hell bent on this egotistical material world
we are not from there—every single boy and girl.
We are from the cosmos where we will return
The “heaven within” it is time to discern.
We are “Oneness, Consciousness, and Total Bliss”
No one can take this away, for we are from the abyss.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
