The moment I close my eyes
Smoke creeps into the air suffocating me like an anaconda
Like a sly Inland Taipan striking me with its poisonous venom,
and then nothing...
I enter a different realm of my mind,
My thoughts moving like clouds across the sky.
I inhale and feel the sweet aroma of incense enter my lungs
Then exhale the ashes of what my life has become.
A storm, a clear sky, a clear mind, or a cloudy day,
My thoughts pass away like moving clouds
And then I become a part of an unclear reality.
Quite interesting how hell can come in and exit your life so quickly
In hell and then exit hell
With each inhale and exhale I take
I can escape to a honeyed bliss,
Sitting on the shallow sand of a windy beach
Viewing clear skies, waves colliding against each other violently and onto the shore
Then I enter reality for the second time once more.
Each time the Zen bell chimes
I am able to have a clear mind
Or change my destination to another paradise
Producing a universal vision on life and developing a wiser paradigm
Escaping the harsh truth of actuality and realism this world put upon us
Full of war, hatred, corruption, prejudiced and imbalanced existence
I am able to escape to a paradise and clarify my being
I’ve finally arisen this morning with some type of peace within my soul
Make me wiser
Make me peaceful
Make me patient
