Escaping The ‘maya’ Of Individuality Poem by Anita Atina

Escaping The ‘maya’ Of Individuality

Rating: 5.0

Away from the confusion of logic

Not blinded by ego’s thrall

Escaping ‘maya’, illusions that keep us fooled

What does it take to break free

From the isolation of individuality

And step into the stream of consciousness

That holds all that we know

The ancients say we are all reflections

Of that glorious energy

We call by different names

God, Allah, Mother Nature

Borrowing from this generous sky

A repository of all that was

And all that will be

We must give back, what we receive

Behind different masks

And colourful personalities

We create, to define who we are

Rises the essence of what we may give back

Yielding another layer, to the pearl

Of the eternal world’s oyster

Like this very much indeed, with its interplay of reflection on reflections finishing with, so fittingly, the image of a pearl. That last line resounds! Many thanks.

Amen Anita. Even the most ebullient waves ultimately recede and become one with the enigmatic blue of the sea. A superb poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
