    Dying to finally erupt from my mental
    But the aftermath may be detrimental
    For the world is purposely judgmental
    Yet I can't keep this truth compartmental
    As this knowledge transforms transcendentally
    Purposely sought after never gained accidentally
    However today my pen seems to be temperamental
    As if this release would just be too monumental
    So I sit radiating frustration from this stagnation
    Wondering when is the manifestation of this gestation
    Frankly humbled in this premeditated hesitation
    Contemplating is this a test of my convictions
    Pondering why I begun inspecting contradictions
    For there's no way to unlook down the rabbit hole
    Yet a part of me wish I stayed sleep in the sheep fold
    But instead I explore the hoofbeats discovering zebra
    Teetering ideals on the balancing scales of the Libra
    The veil pulled back on the traditions of yesteryears
    Now free to look beneath the matrix without fears
    Yet like a skittish mistress it seeks to hold onto its virtue
    However I seduced the remnants of truth into a new hue
    Authentic reverence to behold without static labels
    Discerning between somber facts and entertaining fable
    No kaleidoscopic views or indoctrination to confuse
    Left with the alpha and omega as my sole sincere muse
    I stumbled upon fundamental back to basics spirituality
    Without cultural and aesthetic additives I found divinity
