…and eventually we realize that enlightenment

Is just the beginning.

It is the simple seeing of things

As they actually are.

And after that.

After that!

Well you have to taste the ice cream

To truly know its sweetness.

after you get to heaven –

the fun of exploration.

The sunset –

that started

As the promise of warmth in a dark morning –

Has become a fire so large

That burned me down to nothing.

And only now that I am empty

Can I truly know anything.

Only now that I know myself,

Can I perfectly love you.

(And that is what I want)

Now, only after every fight has fled,

Can God reclaim

The land of my heart.
