What you do in life chooses you. You don’t choose it
But you can reject it and do something safer.
At some point, when you create yourself to succeed,
You will either drop that creation and be freed
To explore who you really are, or you’ll concur
With how others see you for their own benefit.
You do not exist. We’re all playing characters
To help us interact well with one another.
I’m the flickering light and the dancing shadow –
Nothing masquerading as something folks can know
By its name so that the performance can occur.
Anyway, it’s the way society prefers.
Do not kill who you really are for something fake.
Energy depletion will occur if you do.
Inauthentic personalities to maintain
So that you fit in well is a definite drain
On your life force. It is best that you remain true
To your mission. You’ll less likely make a mistake.
You can join the game, fight the wars, and play with form
All you want, but to find real peace you must let go
Of the armor. Your need for acceptance makes you
Quite invisible in this world. Your light shines through
The temple of your body. Let your spirit grow
By not following the practices of the norm.
