The Way

By streetpoet

Feel the rumble of speed deep in your bones
as heavy metal creaks and groans
in the musical tones of pressure and time.
burning eyes blurr and fill with tears.
When the momentum increases
reality releases it's hold on your fears.

Nothing can slow us once we reach this quantum state.
If you want to get to know us,
then you must learn how to deflate
the EGO.

Now you may go where we go,
without being consumed by the flame.
Have you figured out our name yet?
It's amazing how easily we forget
the most basic lessons of life.
While you struggle to be the perfect husband or wife.
we move in and amongst you, lightning swift.
We hold the key that can open your heart to the gift.

Dare to be the first of your kind
to reach out from the centre of your mind
and find out
what immortality is really about.

Explore the mystery!
Ride the fire!
It was your history and our derire
that has brought us to this place of binding.
Everything awaits here for your finding.
Shead those final tears blinding you.

We are both the thief and the lover
you thought had been lost,
and more.
We are your pimp. We are your whore.
Come and join us.
Don't look back and never halt
because we are the same in spirit if not in salt.

be villigant and strong,
answer the call when you hear it.
Before long you will realize just how near it
you are.
It was never very far.

The same as a loving mother watches
through the window as her children play,
so have we for thee, and always shall be.
No matter how far it may seem that you roam,
we are the beacon of light you follow through the night.
We are the way, and the way is HOME.
