Undetectable, over the years it builds…
an immunity to spirituality’s shield
Freedom’s imposter wears the mask of my will
Feigning impunity as the soul seals the deal

Left in the wreckage are projection’s lies,
a catatonic mind lost behind worldly eyes
Everything known is everything inside;
therein lies the root of everything despised

More than the sum of those reckless pieces;
more than the plane of one lost existence;
beyond the carnal cycles of elation and bane,
a holding of supreme elevation still reigns

Woven into the ranting and raving malarkey –
a straining vibration against mankind’s lethargy;
the hush of the noise when spirits are freed;
the rush of the joy when barren eyes see

But we fight and we fight and we fight against love,
turn our backs on the notion of grace from above
Answers are sought through the lids of the blind,
living like there is no end of the line

We bend and we bend and we bend without break,
reveling in pride with sanity on the take
Dreams become nightmares we just can’t shake
because life is a coma and we refuse to awake

Wake up! Wake up! We can still be alive
Pick up the armor and strengthen the stride
Our strategies differ, but we’re in the same war
Us against them will never settle the score

Victory begins when we know there’s much more
than the stench of deception we wear like cheap whores
Not man against man, but love versus fear
Use spiritual authority to make the view clear

One note across the board, but nothing’s the same
Everyone plays a part, but no one’s to blame
Every piece, so different, building towards one end –
all are in the struggle hoping to transcend

Don’t go on defeated behind enemy lines
Harness your spirit to the ties that bind
to eternity’s promises for the chosen wielded
Let today be the day you march onward shielded


    1. Thank you, Karuna! I’m glad you think so much of it. 🙂 I hit a stump after starting on your last prompt, and this spilled out instead. But yours is coming… 😀

      1. This needed to be “spilled out.” I hope lots of people see it.

        I’m glad to hear from you. I was a bit concerned when I went to your blog and saw you hadn’t posted anything for awhile.

        I look forward to what you write for the new prompt. There is no rush. It takes however much time it takes!

        1. How sweet of you. Your intuition is strong. I’ve been dealing with health issues the past few weeks. This past weekend was unlike anything I’ve experienced physically. But after shifting gears from the HMO (that’s been killing me with antibiotics & steroids) to my holistic guru… I am finally on the right track and hope to fully recover in the coming months. This year has started off rough, but I am always seeking the deeper blessing in any suffering I experience. So I’m looking at the whole situation as an opportunity to reset, refocus and re-balance my life for the better. Thanks so much for your concern <3

          1. I’m glad to hear that you found a health provider that is helping and that you feel you are now on the right track again. Reset, refocus and re-balance…… What a great way to say it.

            May I quote you should the opportunity arise? (And it will probably arise soon.) I’m doing the same thing. My unplug prompt was for me too. That is one big way I need to reset, refocus and re-balance.

  1. Always a joy to see your words in the dungeon. I love this line, “a straining vibration against mankind’s lethargy.” It kind of says it all for me. We just have to tune in, but are so uninterested in freedom.
    So glad your keeping the dungeon alive while I’m traipsing across India. And with a true seekers yearning, your words are always deep and full of meaning.

    1. Accidentally pressed “send” while responding…
      You are absolutely right. I love how you always get it… so refreshing when someone truly understands what I’m saying. Here, I often get a deer-in-headlights look with a head cocked to the side. Lol (but actually kind of sad). I hope you are enjoying your amazing travels with Amma. 🙂

    2. Oh, and thank you! Your words mean a lot. I guess I should’ve fully awakened before trying to respond on my phone through the haze of half asleep eyes, Hmm… the irony in that… 🙂
