ONE
(7/14/07)


don't
believe them

the true purpose
of this limited time
which we have
been given
here on Earth
is the singular pursuit
of our own
particular path
to the Creator

life
is our purgatory
our chance
to purify
our souls
with the light
of the Divine

forget
all the bullshit
about brotherly love
charity in the highest
helping your fellow man
with good works
good intentions
and good PR
they are all
human inventions
distracting us
from our only task
amongst the living
and preventing
the recipients
from focusing
on the same

forget about
technological innovations
business endeavors
professional sports
social engineering
medical advances
space exploration
fortune building
public standing
arts and letters
government
parenthood
education
marriage
military
religion
family
and home
they are all
just tragic
wastes of time
as goals unto themselves
ego enhancing propositions
in some form or fashion
unless realized as
the disposable vehicles
they can be
in carrying us
toward
the absolute

the Devil's
descent of disgrace
was not instantaneous
and as a passing
parting shot
he layered
the world
with human love
for all
that was
not
God
laughing
as he created
one hell
on his way
to another

an underworld
provided initially
as his prison
but which
eventually
became
his platform
for all
worldly notions
and conceits

he
laughs
still
