Self-knowledge

Self-preservation

Is like quicksand

On the road

Towards universal liberation.

But keep sinking.

Lose yourself.

Taste the goodness

That awaits.

Your presence

Pulls back the curtain

That reveals Awareness.

Awareness dissolves

The barriers

That make you other than me.

Now that nothing

Is in our way,

One.

I created distance

Between us

Thinking it was best

Not seeing that

I suppressed the me

Your presence

Was inviting me to see.

Come closer, please.

I may still

Want to run away

But I will stay,

Loving you

And inviting in more of me.
