PANTOMIME 



We build bubble coves,

to hide away from the storms 

of life, 

knowing too well that

 it could only provide us some 

temporal warmth, and safety, 

yet we rebel against 

the voice of our spirit

_____

The spirit who only yearns 

for eternal pleasures, 

and lasting security 

for our own benefit 

_____

Have 

we been reduced to 

mere seekers of  

temporal bliss,

_____

being caged in an exaggerated 

emotional prison?

_____

We’re wrapped in facade

Dancing to the tune we

never requested.

_____

Who am I?

Who controls me?

Why am I dancing to this song?

Is there more to know than this?

_____

Illuminate the darkness—

Chase it through the desert,

Out of your soul;

Burying her in the oceans depths

_____

You shall return to your primal self

This is not you

This is never you

Find you, and live you

_______

Oh, earth-maker 

Oh, earth-maker

Maybe, you can give me

a reality to hold on to.
