Mind Poise - Poem by Roy Ernest Ballard

I came across a bridge among the trees;
beyond belief it stretched across the seas.
As slender as a web in quick ascent,
it soon ascended to the firmament.
I mounted step by step and on the way
the earth beneath it vanished quite away,
diminished to a purple spot in space
and then to nothing, gone without a trace.
The bridge itself dissolved and in the void,
with every solid thing strayed or destroyed,
I stood in emptiness without a rung,
all foothold gone, where vast oblivion hung.
Annihilated all, save only me,
a new, bewildering reality.
