Insights


A loud note sometimes and colourful too
enchanted, you walk up and up endlessly
life straying out to every side, good or bad
giving insights and guiding through the alleys,
strange and friendly and then clouds of  confusion
a carnival of faith, do I be here or do I be there
a man sits silent with eyes closed, so calm
all the strange gods and all the strange faith
melted and abstracted to a single faith
oh sir give me insight and let me know your faith…
I asked in and he poured out something that touched,
faith in self, self the mirror, the protector and
the commander and where I see my god in person.
