Alive Death And Standing Deaths - Poem by Abel Solomon

When a person obsessed on material
Eagerness to be above
Attachment for success
Forgetting his essence
Loose the universe
Confined only in his own history and novel
Low in spirit and apart from his soul
Disconnected from whole
But indulged in the world and of the world
Strive to gain the world
Missing that naked he came out of his mother’s womb,
And naked shall he return there
Strive and strike to the world of the world
For to be succeeded
Destruction of anything
People around him, his environment and his soul
Though he make fame his name in the world
His name can be raised from one end to another end
And then he has become called the SUCCEEDED BULL
The gates opened for the bulls and run out
Just like a bull wins bull running or fight
While it clears everything in his race

The succeeded can attain in this way many gaining
But they are like to die standing
While existing
When, eventually, the inevitable alive death comes
Those many deaths the succeeded died for while standing
Will be written on the succeeded tomb
But alive death transfer the soul
The Soul continue to travel
The striver and the striving remained engraved on the tomb
That many standing deaths are showed and described
Body buried
How alive death is beauty and restful
Helping to transit the soul
To another dimension as a channel
