The Underground Garden: Burrow, Tales From A Past


 

In an urgent state of healing, tending, correcting, repairing, reflecting
The duties of a sole soul for mind and body
Brings a relief from another’s mistaken load
And my own

Clears way for discovering an untraveled road

Whose signs are decipherable
You just know

You come to river waters and grab your oars

You just go

Arrive to other sides
Exercise healed tended corrected repaired
All reflected

Trifecta of peace
Soul body and mind

Sands left for this time
Step off dangerous lines
Through enemy lines
Shields up truth
Down with all lies

Tongue laced with medicinal knives
Honesty cuts when it’s based on a life that is their’s and not mine

When I speak to me, the cuts are as deep

My garden
I shield soil from weeds and pesticide
Electric toes of love energy bring seeds
We align

My gates are closed otherwise
While in an urgent state of becoming better than my own lie.

I hope you don’t mind.

The maze’s walls began to close in
I was too close to sin
Wasn’t going to win

A good night’s sleep

I see you light
I walk
You guide
I break
Then fly
Promising myself no more living lies

Leaving wrong turns and inexhaustive sheep behind
Found exit signs and red carpets

I premiere in solitude
Charged and present remake a debut

5 points shining is the best for both me and you

I am not alright
Solitude is my right
The return from silence will be with strengthened mind
In turn deeper waters for those who wish to dive
Into abyss

In turn fresher air for me to hold and to kiss

Appreciation stems from perspective
Burrowed, I appreciate the reflected
Resurfaced, I reflect the appreciated
Love outside has waited
And its arms are the ones I return to.

Burrowed I learn to remember
Love needs Love too
It begins with me
It begins with you

Take your time when tunneling in search of your breakthrough.

I promise
Time will Thank You.
