For the herd have not an inkling
and in the twinkling of an eye
these changes rearrange us
as we aim now for the sky...

But these lies remain a butress
as they try to hold you down,
for humans are not starlings
they were made just for the ground...

but i donot deny my origins
as i breathe true spirit in.
for it was meant from the beginning
that all should enter in...

And so i dream of life eternal.
and so i must now give up sin,
as my flesh approaches spirit,
the true modality of zen.

i feel this is the best part of the poem,
its so mysterious when i first read it, thats what i liked about it.

Thank you for the kind response...

I glad you could enjoy this poem.

Maybe poetry is one of the best ways to express

"metaphysical" feelings....
