i shall live forever . . . a gift from the inner child

i shall live forever
a gift from the inner child

i remember
when i was a kid
i used to innocently
proudly boast
“i am going to live forever”

i ask my self
when did i stop believing that ?

the world has taught me death
and i am thankful
for now i understand
Death is man’s metaphor
for birth

what the Christ said
stays in my head
“i lay down my life
that i may pick it up again
for i have the power to do so”
so i do so
while glowing
in the knowing
that “IS”-ness
is eternal
as is this “NOW”

and some how
some way
i must let go of my focus
on the potential sorrow
of the morrow
and the ways
of past days
and open this singular eye
and cease to deny
that death is an ultimate end
which the finite illusions
of the world

let us speak life
with a rife
of conciliations
with unmovable
in consciousness
to truth
that we are eternal beings
of what we are seeing

and this is my contribution

i shall live forever
a gift from the inner child
