Essence of Life

Through midnight dreams
Creating images
Never will I see
Striving toward euphoria
Without smoke, powders or liquids
Naturally believing
Still it’s deceiving

Through the storied past
Lessons learned
Uncountable bodies burned
Humiliating history
Yet we claim the source a mystery
No one sacrificing to be free
Because freedom is a commodity

Through words in historic text
Paralyzed thinking how history
Can ever tell you what’s next
Avoiding past behavior
Expecting a clandestine savior
Yet every hero is battered
Until the thought of the next

Through two pair of arms
Bodies intertwined
Weathering every storm
Intimacy so diligently
Somehow inspires desires
Knowing one entity
Still loves me
