Chaos Enshrouded - Poem by David Lacey

All about lay Chaos enshrouded
As we dedicate ourselves into meditation.
We bend as we break the rules of our schooling
Still we seek to penetrate the skies through the windows secret.

That same window pane upon which our dragon
Hath crashed so many times in vain.

Penetrate Wisdom beyond the recollection
Of sensory experience yet know that we are
To lay without resistance to the rhythms
Of life’s ever present flowing.

Seek to know the truth beyond
A blanket snow of Virgin Innocence.

I’m left indifferent to the callings of my defences.
Seeking as I am, sense beyond reason
Seeking Love beyond acceptance of Our Mother
We are but constructing the boundaries of our own self confinement.

If we are to break free of these shackles of our binding
We much tackle the subject insistently.
We must be resilient in defiance.
Yet remain open to the truths spoken beyond the comprehension
Of our souls.

We are lost hearts defeated
Our glory is the realization
We are whole within ourselves.

Still every now and then it’s nice to place
The illusion of a reality confused upon the shelf.
