I wish to be free from the heavy weight
of guilt, and shadows of sin and hate.
Slave to desire, I see I’m weak.
Escape is not the flight I seek.
On the edge of the abyss I meditate,
and know I must begin a great
journey of the inner soul,
the only way to become whole.
My inner space odyssey begins,
as I am drawn deep within –
an inward journey where I’ll find
jewels in the monolith of the mind.
I feel a pull I can’t resist
to where time ceases to exist.
Everything becomes a void.
All I know has been destroyed.
I feel a sense of peace instill,
as the empty void begins to fill
with all the scattered parts of me,
and broken pieces of humanity.
I am the sentinel of my mind,
that only a dissident can find.
I am all parts of infinity,
stretching through eternity.
Deeper, I’m drawn into the depths,
creating energy with my breath.
I see Venus, Jupiter and Mars…
and…Oh… my God it’s full of stars!
