Physical birth, welcomes to earth,
the malleable, pliable mind!
An innate yearning, for advancement & learning,
Teachings; either damage, or are kind!
Confidence or Limitation,
equals strength or navigation,
installing the routes they will take!
Either; self-worth & choice,
or fear and no voice,
Separate tools for self-esteem or self-hate!
If it's become a matter,
of having programmed the latter,
Trauma is the destination for most!
Imported anger & pain,
Fear, guilt & shame,
Responsibility now in the hands of the host!
Battling demons, haunted by nightmares,
knowledge that the devils eyes are red!
confusion prevailing, the spirit is failing,
mind & body wracked with anguish & dread!
Alone - beyond hopelessness,
silent & still,
shielded by an invisible screen!
From a blurry, safe distance,
a disconnected observer,
views reality like a distorted dream!
When everything's lost,
Nothing has value,
the senses are comfortably numb!
Come - the birth of the ego,
Summoning the fighter,
demanding she heads for the Sun!
The spirit is evolving,
the journey; internal,
the ego encourages its host!
exploring new landscape,
tuned in & more enlightened than most!
With the screensaver lifted,
The senses are primed,
Intuitive, observant, awake!
reprogrammed she will re-navigate!
