They trusted that they’d “Become Enlightened”
because the man on the poster looked believable in his toga.
They so willingly turned their pockets inside out
because the man in the toga told them to release all possessions.
They shed their anger
because he enraged their beliefs.
They gave him old ideals
because rust always grows when lessons fail to stimulate,
and the last vein of knowledge shrinks inside
leaving selves naked and
truths that lie within.
To accept ‘self’ as omniscient,
in the very core of one’s self,
gives courage to go where there is no path,
and to have faith in one’s own guidance
to reach the destiny of one’s dreams.
