    There are times,...in this world that we live,
    we only get out of life, what we give

    Just what could one give or contribute to earth
    when we're born from the beginning of each one's birth

    that...

    We're to love, cry, grow old and die,
    while our oppressors rapidly pass us by?

    Sometimes I do wonder, what is there to life
    besides all the drama, the pain and strife?

    The journey is really, to take that step in,
    that's really where the divinity of our spirits begin.

    Inside you'll find all the tools for your life...
    never again will you die a death twice!!

    Great piece poet, thanks for sharing it.​

    I see where you said you'll never die twice,
    that's true in the physical but this is life.
    I've died many times in this thing call life,
    in mind, in spirit, in pain and in strife.
    I've died only to find myself resurrected,
    in light that keeps my soul well protected.

    So the journey we take is always within,
    but that's not the place most people begin.
    We think of another, a friend or a lover,
    a place we can hide or live under cover.
    We seek the external that's so out of reach,
    in hope that we'll find true love or true peace.

    We play with each other in lust do we seek,
    to find all we need to make one complete...
    but this ain't the answer and life will reveal
    the truth once we learn to really be still.​

    This is one of those pieces where I really can't find just the right words to respond. So I'll just say that one can never look within enough, no matter what that may reveal, no matter how painful. Props on this.
