Don't believe them if they say

It will happen in a flash of light

The insight might

But it won't stay

Don't believe them if they say

It's time to move on

Your mind may race ahead

But your body knows better

Why does it linger in the morning before getting out of bed?

Don't listen if they say

Pull yourself together

Allow yourself to fall apart

Watch closely

There are no broken pieces

Just little bits of me

Finally free

To move around

Stretch their legs on new ground

Rearrange themselves out of curiosity

With time you'll see

There is no me to hang on to

And when you let go

There will be nothing to show

Just flow in liquid being
