Cast their spell on minds,
They come in quick, opportunistic speeds,
And snatch what they can find.
They bomb the being with
Blockages unclean, make you disbelieve
And take your faith.
Fear not, just raise yourself
From the grave they dug for themselves

On old ways, not yet inlearned
To press the big self destruct button,
What is the prescription
To not fall from grace
To the nth circle of hell?
A bandhan, self forgiveness,
A promise to rise,
Just one more time than
The times we fall?
A shoebeat, some ghee,
To calm the self, give discretion
Or some combination of all?
So I wonder how long
Is the rope of forgiveness
By which I hang and slip for years
Surely there is an end when the deeds run out
But I don't want to see that terminal end.

my heart yearns to assimilate the qualities;
end the slavery to the senses,
and let the spirit become the ruling guru of the being
if i eat for taste not hunger, i apologize
if i see for visual relish, i apologize
if i touch for sensuality, i apologize
if i smell for intoxication, i apologize
if i speak from pride, i apologize
may the guru within forgive
