The Cycle of Life and Death
...by raxnae

Samsara, King for a day, peasant the next,
Round and Round we go, Reincarnating Souls,
Lucky if we Remember, Through the Veil of Ignorance,
Happy Mask, Sad Mask,
What is this Game?

Void, Great Unknowable Infinite Everything and Nothing, Born from it to Return to it,
Reborn again, I've pierced its heart,
Learned my Truth in the Abyss, Fractured Memory Supplanted by Imagination and Fantasy,
Nirvana to some, a Prison to Others,
What is the Sum of All Things?

Ocean, Collective Unconscious, the Single Thread Uniting our Hearts,
Within it we find All Memories, what some call Akashic Records,
But in the New Age Fluff, we Forget it is simply our Resting Place,
In Slumber, we can Awaken and Remember,
Who are the Dead Alive?

Cosmic, we Dance among the Stars, the Greatest of Stories is all our Story,
Balance through Calamity, Death by Reflection,
Rebirth by Contemplation, Ascend the Chains of Immortality,
When the Old Transmutes into the New, After Rewriting the Old Stories,
When does the New Tale Begin that has no End but only Renewal like Baptismal Waters?

Smoke, like the Cherry Poem, Withering my Body away,
My Love/Hate Relationship with Life and Death, Seeking Answers from the Depths of Being,
The Heart Bullet, Ever Still Embedded in my Chest,
I am Void, I will Consume,
When will my Flame Burn Out?
