What’s This Life About?

You were once swimming in murky waters,

Evil lurking with you overlooking the light behind you,

Attempting to signal you back home,

But we’ve turned our backs from it momentarily,

Feeding our naive curiosity, fueled by our animosity, that was embedded in our psyche,

The world has programmed us to self-destruct,

Some people call it just “being human,” but we cannot normalize embracing the darkness, not trying to open our eyes, we would be glorifying our own demise,

We are human, but we are also spiritual beings, capable of overcoming vices from harmful devices that our traumas forced us to need to cope with,

The attacks are relentless, daily we deal with this,

At least don’t go without a fight. That fight in you shows your intent to be righteous,

your effort will not be in vain, when you seek to confront pain, practice healthy self-restraint, discipline to be vigilant,

instead of indulging in meaningless hedonism that’ll hypnotize you into oblivion, and learn nothing from this Earthly experience.

The riches we must multiply is in wisdom, a valid currency for the afterlife.
