To Soar Above… 10.14.2008 - Poem by Margaret Alice

I’m scared of sinking into my body,
trying to hover a few metres from it,
yesterday my body fettered my soul
and manacled my mind

Even feeding it a waffle to take the
effect of MSG away didn’t help, I was
exposed to the view of the world
unable to lead my own life

Today I am angry, scared of what pain
and suffering my body can cause me,
did not give it MSG flavour enhancer
deliberately, never knew

It was in the dish till afterwards, then
pain caused me to wear my sunglasses
inside, my eyes kept on closing, I was
exposed, betrayed by my body

I’m lifting off by mind power to soar above
this weak vehicle in which I am supposed
to complete a physical life…
