The Froth I am
I look at the waves on the sea,
Waves that brought the universe,
Ripples that brought my mother earth,
The froth that I am,
How short lived yet how big a struggle,
I take a deep sigh, eyes soaked in tears
My masters say it is all my Karma,
I was once one celled, now a billion
once a bird, once an animal,
Stuck in this discontinuity.
I had family in my past lives,
I hope I gave them all I could,
yet my ignorance brought me here.
I juggle too many balls this life,
that not let me take my eyes off,
Them imaginary but them mightant.
Chains of ignorance that bind me,
I pray for knowledge,
I pray for light,
from devotion alone I will transcend.
Seeking solution amid struggles of change,
I am reminded there is no solution,
but dissolution in changeless unity
I seek to break my barriers
of intellect and reasoning,
they have held me captive for long
Will sure know once and forever,
the unchangeable unity that I am.
For every life is a pilgrimage,
there exists just one destination.
