Genius of Humanity
The genius is in the resolution,
That follows closely with the dissolution.
Reflecting deeply at the sky,
Looking beyond and asking why.
Why does it seem so foreign to be who I am?
Am I the lion or am I the lamb?
Or am I both depending on the moment and what it requires?
Am I the honest one in a room full of liars?
Why didn’t school or politics work for me?
Because it ostracized the individual and demanded conformity.
They claimed to be teaching but they were taking away,
They fed us absurdities and told us what to think and say.
Taught to memorize but not to understand,
Taught to label and to brand.
To crave power, divide, and hate,
To belittle and berate,
They control the mass fate.
They built our world on suffering and humility,
They hide their silent and unseen hostility.
I warn you not to betray yourself,
It will devastate your mental health.
Don’t give away your power and soul,
Don’t let someone else have control.
You deserve to live a life you love,
It should feel like a gift from above.
I warn you to find your own unique path,
Success and happiness is the aftermath.
You have a true self that you can turn inward and see,
Your very own form of authenticity.
When you find it you will be free.
From that place you begin to grow,
From the depth you find the inner know.
You don’t need any outside authority,
You know your life is your responsibility.
You can survive the deepest humility.
You can let go of hostility.
We are all dying but I hope you first learned how to live,
We are all receiving but I hope you first learned how to give.
I do not accept the social role,
It is my life and I will take control.
It is my cup and I will decide when it’s full.
