there is an agitation in me

to find truth, direction, cure, and light

I live in a turbulent time

moving left to centre to right


emotions are high

as I pick a side

as I lose time

as I leave my self behind


this here is my leader

this here is my written word

this here is my God

where though is my conscious, to be heard


after birth, life

after life, death

is life enrichment of my soul

or is it a loss this breath


this here war, strife, and famine

this here waste, corruption, and violence

this here struggle

is this life my penance


or, is it love and kindness bestowed,

abundance of nature,

the beauty beheld in my senses,

the blend of these my past, present, future


will good prevail

and ease this agitation mine

will god bless

this world, my shrine⁠⁠⁠⁠
