Dream,

There is only one path,

That is your path,

Weightless or crushed,

Still,

Only you are the path.

There is nothing to find,

One path,

Nothing to see,

One path,

Nothing to know,

One path,

Nothing to hear,

One path,

Nothing for you,

Just one path,

Its all there,

Just you alone and your path.

The gift and curse is your path.

The stone knows, the rivers know, the trees know, the mountains know.

One path.

The Sun knows its place, the moon knows,

You are your path.

No matter what and where,

One path.

The journey is the same,

Where ever you go, one path.

You are your own root, you are your own tree of life.

One path.

Single and whole,

Full of life and energy,

All you can do is grow.

Strong or weak, its you,

Young and old its you,

Happy or sad its you,

Ripples in the bark of your mind, trying to change that,

No matter its you.

Gravity or weightless its you,

Time or no time, its you.

Wrong or right,

Its you,

Fight or flight its you,

Kind or rude its you,

Angry or frustrated, its you.

Wild or tame its you,

Hollow or full,

Its you,

Strange or not,

Its there,

The center of all things,

The being of all things,

You accept its you, and if you reject its you,

And so are all things in the entire universe.

They are what they are.

God is God.

Melody cannot hear it self,

The song cannot sing it self,

Rhythm cannot beat it self,

Beauty cannot recognize it self,

Feeling cannot feel it self,

The thought cannot think it self,

The essence of all is all there is, no more and no less

God does not need to know, nor witness things, he is the essence of all.

The essence of all is all.

Chaos is motion,

Order is form,

All form are God essence.

All essence is God.

All of Universe is energy in form.

So who are you.

You are the form.

You are the energy.

You are the essence.

And such things cannot be undone.

They are.

I think the poem exerts confidence, particuarlly of contentment. But I feel like the essense of the poem leans a bit too much on tautology rather than a specific, shared experience. I encourage more though!

I would just take out the excess "one path" comments and leave that for the beginning or the end to make more impact. The content was good.

Patience

To be patient, one must embrace the waves,

To sit with yourself, among the winds,

To bring about things, let the forces of your body move,

stay where you are,

so all impurity - they can remove,

because what moves, and goes, is not you,

what stays within is rooted.

Cradle the silence, let the force of world roll off.

Let the time and stillness atrophy all that needs to go,

whatever is good will stay.

21st century crapsody

Your DNA is a Darwinian winner ribbon,

Dissolved in acid of postapocalyptic freedom

You’re the result of a koala humped by a gibbon.

Reality is a word that sticks last manual glass blowing class

Root of all evil is a man with a bona fide word,

So smart 4th grade teacher got hurt,

Never buy your own load of shit, and sell it like a lord

Might as well bribe the ghost of the hoard.

Your mind is a ghost town, and conscious mind is a wench

This isn’t a rhyme, but just a hobo on park bench.

Printing the fake emotions like federal reserve bank

Every time you fidget your last one is a skank,

You got hit by layers of truth, with no evidence and no proof,

Hitting the roofs like Spitfire pilots with no parachutes,

The land crippled by hot heads and petty boots,

All cause tits and pussy you cannot stay,

It’s time to say no and disobey,

Never, let the lottery ticket deceive you,

You are only bringing yourself they are not bring it to you.

Dictums of apology

for strange perception of mythology,

radical honesty among the capital plenty,

hitting the future year of 2024

education of the masses the bottom of the floor,

never deny the electronic warfare, in your head every single pixel

is a dark square, layer and layer, brick by brick,

welcome to post whatever fabrique,

here we yell to be quiet, and we say not now to riot.

TO flood the mind with irrelevant clutter,

So, you can bitch and please the primitive hoper

Nothing to stand for if you’re willing to try,

It’s better to have been the eye of the witness,

Every single time, over the top title of monochromatic season,

Pleasing and teasing the fish with legs,

Hopeless duty to system of property,

When you are the cow to be milked,

To be the evolved commodity,

So, the social engineering pretty as is fit for you,

Bringing batteries to rise against the apehood,

To define your tribe of statehood.

Anarchy of the gene pool, your pheromones stink,

Go eat dirt you fool, the crippled pillars of palace,

That can never rule, because the megalomaniacs,

Were too late to rule, and too early to spell,

To count how many curves before sure hell.

Schemas of robotics update to the cloud,

Repressed anger, the washed-up hound,

Savior is a false prophet of degeneracy

of primal eclipse,

Of fake moves in the mind groves,

Do not deceive to lie your way out,

Instead, be honest and proud,

Profound instability is the currency of new age,

Prepare to be rattled down to your mitochondria,

Here is the word in chronological order.

First is one, then is two, whatever comes after,

Too late, this game is through.
