Give up

GIVE UP

Swirls,
of all colors
Spellbinding
Ah…
you abandon yourself.
In these sparkling waters

You dance unrestrained.
Until currents come to trip you
from under
unseen
unheard
unexpected

This life
a distortion
perceived through the prism, kaleidoscope
of the idea that you `know`

But to think you know
Is to start to fall, to lose.
because the judgments made
are like the cage that caught the wind:
empty.

For all its wonders
For all its promises
This life is a trick of one’s imagination
A house of mirrors.
This life is all illusion

Give up.
Give up.
Give up.

Give up all pretense
Walk unhindered
freed
Cross to the other side
of this madness

And find the arms
the chest and the warmth
of your home
of your father

Leave this world to erase
in the early morning light
As nightmares do
when the eyes finally open
