Let It Become You


we create jobs
to buy food and shelter
when Earth provides it

we follow ambition
to garner self-worth
when we are born
with all necessities
and a priceless body

we kill others
to gain land and power
when we can’t own land
and cannot have more
than is naturally given

we claim falsities as truth
abandonment as freedom
corruption as law
drunk as sober
war as peace
death as life

everything is within us
yet we seek for answers
meditate on reality
and let it become you
