Alone we are born alone we die

In between aloneness sometimes we cry

Often our life aspires to delusion

As we fight and battle inner confusion


Every so often awake from this dream

Experience the sweetness of your biological machine

It’s not very often that oneness visits

Somehow we know the wholeness in us


We come for the lessons on our pilgrim’s path

A major challenge to avoid our own wrath

Only in a body do we get to feel

All the emotions in the animal sphere


Living can be disjointed on this human plane

Contrast the unity of the plane from which we came

In the higher dimension a place we call home

There is no alone we’re part of the whole


Memory of this unity can haunt life on earth

No matter how noble or genteel our birth

So as you search for a path back to your god

Please not too serious and do wink and nod


What do you remember about your other worldly experience?

How do those memories inform or guide your life?

If you don’t recollect what memory would you like to have if you did have one?

How would that imagined memory serve you?
