DEAD TO THE WORLD
(8/7/19)


to try

to work

to struggle
to suppress
the peopled
plane
of existence

for so many
years
without success

then
to wake up
one day

unmoved
by all things
human

seems quite
the miracle

until
we realize
that the first
step
of our
spiritual journey
has finally
been taken

with so
many more
to go

alone
