Inner ConflictTendrils reaching up through turfInner Conflict by shadowysilence
Corrupting, tainting, blackening earth;
Seek to fight the growing storm
But where to strike a foe without form?
Make your way to safety’s shore
Until homeland is free once more;
But the longer hiding with your thoughts
The more, the more, this old heart rots;
Don’t neglect it, don’t be afraid
With courage and wisdom even monsters are unmade;
But first out your own soul you must take
The darkness of that very monster’s make;
For no evil starts alone you see
It grows, it grows, in you and me;
Until it sprouts in other’s hearts
And that is where it truly starts;
So go and spread the word today
And perhaps, perhaps the tide will sway.

Yet We Were Always OneOh universal breath, take me higher to where my soul alone cannot reachYet We Were Always One by shadowysilence
Absolve me of my thoughts, my pains, all that is me, wash it away
Remind me where I come from, how I am all, but all is not me
How when my eyes close finally my energy is at one with all energy again
And all of my fighting and resistance was futile, young old, rich poor, strong weak, it doesn’t matter
Remind me light of lights what it is to die, so that my living is no longer drowned sin
Sin of waste, sin of a clouded mind, separating “me” from wholeness
Sin of disconnection, sin of words without meaning, and hearing without listening
Sin of fear, doubting and anxiety that prevent my true purpose;
Light of light, melt me into your majesty so that I may forget to forget
Remind me what it is to have no bounds, let “I” and “we” lose meaning
Take away my humanity so that it may be saved
When I return I will not remember, no one remembers, no one forgets
But we all felt it when
UncertaintyThe Blessed Un-blessednessUncertainty by shadowysilence
Of living, a life
Bound to end
So many questions,
Where am I going?
Where are we going?
Where are we going?
You can't leave me...
Don't leave me
Don't make me
Think it over
Nothing worse than that...
To have to ponder
Truth of existence
For my soul
In this tomb
Tomb of a world
Where a soul
But a body
May wither a
