What You Need

The uncertainty of tomorrow brings chills to my spine

As I display the posture of my subconscious mind

With freedom comes nothing and nothing comes free

The paper I write on cost the life of a tree

Do you know what I’m saying- am I coming through clear

This all has no meaning- yet we tread with great fear

It’s beyond all the sayings- beyond any words

It’s the feeling of pain with the subjective beauty of birds

The laughs of a baby and wails of an elder

The collective assimilation of a destructive skelter

We live in a garden- a hole- a hell

A heaven- an atom- a space- a cell

We exist among humans- spirits- foes

Surrounded by what we think we know

I know that I don’t know whether or not I know

An innate understanding required to grow

The surface seems safe for all who deem it

The eye of the tornado for all those near it

The uncertainty of tomorrow brings chills to my spine

As I display the posture of my subconscious mind

The protection of one- the destruction of many

Good or bad- perception is key

We create a world of confusion- you see?

To create is to destroy- to destroy is to create

Yin and yang- balance is great

Great as in big- not great as in good

Unless good you see- then I’m misunderstood

Life is art and art is this that you read

It rhymes but it doesn’t- it gives what you need

Even in certainty there isn’t a vow

Don’t get caught in the answers- be present in now
