Higher Self

Economize my rise I've done.
And snipped from useless baggage kept,
With steps directed towards the Sun.
And clouded eyes are now so clear.
Like the dawn in the morning that appears.

The higher self awaits...
To free a satiating quest I take.
Shakened loose and untied from knots.
The me within transcends and lifts...
To a place where my burdens,
Are forgotten and dropped!

Enhanced I am,
With renewed insight I've got!
Holding on I do,
With a faith unrestricted...
To heights that will not stop!

The higher self awaits...
To free a satiating quest I take.
Shakened loose and untied from knots.
The me within transcends and lifts...
To a place where my burdens,
Are forgotten and dropped!

    I enjoy your poetry. This one speaks so clearly to me about inner vision. We should all have that experience again and again!
