Climbing Poetree - Awakening

Awakening

Darkness 
is only the absence of light
like loneliness 
is the reason we fight
and fear 
is the reason we might never know 
what it'd be like
if we all realized the meaning of our lives
and lived as if life depended on the gifts 
we tried to hide.
 
Whoever told you 
you can't fly
was afraid of heights
you reach if you try.
You better free your mind
before they illegalize thought.
There’s a war going on.
The first casualty was truth
and it’s inside you.
 
The universe is counting on our belief
that faith is more powerful than fear
and in that shifting moment,
we'll all remember why we're here
in a world where you're assassinated 
for having a dream
and the rich spend 9 billion a year 
to control our ideas
and visions are televised,
so things aren't what they seem.
 
We gotta believe in a world 
where there's room enough for everyone
to breathe
'cause reality is made of 7 billion thoughts
who made up their minds
of what's real and what's not.
So I stopped believing
in false idols of war, greed and hate.
It's not worth my faith.
 
And my mind's dedicated
to justice
and my soul's devoted to love
and love is God
and God is truth
and truth is you
and you are me
and I am everything
and everything is nothing
and nothing is the birthplace of creation
and transformation is possible
and you are proof.
 
And the most powerful tool
in the hands of the oppressor
is what's inside our heads.
And the most dangerous weapon 
to combat the deception
lives inside our chest.
Hold a mirror to your heart.
What does it reflect?
What will be the message
of the legacy we've left?
 
We were born right now for a reason.
We can be whatever
we give ourselves the power to be
and right now we need
dream weavers,
bridge builders,
truth sayers,
light bearers,
food growers,
wound healers,
trailblazers,
life lovers,
peacemakers.
 
Give 
what you most deeply desire
to give.
Every moment, you are choosing to live
or you are waiting.
Why would a flower hesitate to open?
Now is the only moment.
Raindrop, let go,
become the ocean.
Possibility is as wide
as the space we create
to hold it.
 
We were born right now
for a reason. 
The reason is up to you.
Just think, if so much 
is controlled by so few,
imagine how much so many of us could all do.
When you consider 
this system runs off of our fuel,
if we stop running along,
we see just who's ruling who.
The game don't exist 
if we don't play by its rules.
 
So don't be scared of the spark
in the spell of great darkness
or afraid of the light 
in the moment of dawning
or the heights you will reach
when you rise to your calling
and release all your rain,
call it flying or falling.
 
Let go of your wanting
and give in to your longing
to live free of possession
and full of belonging
to the intricate infiniteness(?).
We're all a part of the web
that you wove.
In a dream you've forgotten
was the creator awakening into our conscience,
condensation of vapor 
into a droplet of water.
 
Thanks!
