Thereís much to answer for
The flawed man
Yearning for perfection
But falls short every time
Making amends from honesty of heart
Prayers hopeful you can leave yesterday behind.
If today is to be fruitful
No one shall be bended
To fit your needs
Or manipulated to ease your mind
For if you desire a clean conscience
When you close the eyes
Proof is essential
Lest the words are as empty
As the soul
You can boast
How many possessions acquired
But they wonít keep you warm at night.
You yearn to evolve beyond the primitive
Not scheme to fit the narrative
Has no power if the heart is pure
Itís difficult to love
If youíve never been shown the way
But if you remain teachable
Enlightment is reachable
It may take a lifetime
But as long as you make the effort
There will be progress
No need to wait for a sign
The light has always shined
Itís you that chose to run.
