False ego, parasite, program and akin;
we cannot lie to those dwelling within.
For what is on our minds they can tell;
our thought they know intimately well.
So our hope does not rest with escape,
rather in changing the inner landscape.
To embrace a deeper truth as our way;
one so profound that we can truly say:
“Even as I shall dance closer to death,
I choose to welcome life’s raw breath.”
