Seeking - Poem by Mike Barrett

We seek.
How we do seek!
Drawn by a long forgotten joy
Which deep inside
Knows the futility
Of the worlds
We've created
While lost
In these lower worlds
Of maya.

Alone and together
We seek
To unravel the mysteries
Of what
We've unknowingly
Fallen into.

Hoping to escape,
Daring to care,
We pursue our path
Following the light
And the sound -
Then,
Guided
By the Eternal Master
We once again
Begin to re-realize
The truth
Of what
We had left
And THAT
Which we had
Forgotten!
