The Monkey God
I wrote this poem after realizing that you should never transfer loyalty to ideology, money, religions, philosophies and anything else that isn’t produced by the majesty of your own mind. The absolutely trustworthy is located at the center of your own heart. Societies and cultures prevent us from seeing this innate genius due to behavioral conditioning and thought control.
he turns from himself,
he turns from God,
because he finds a new God.
The God within.
And my conviction is that You are God.
There is no God but You.
You exist in space
You exist through all time.
You resonate within all matter,
but the inward Eye you will never flatter.
For better or for worse,
Jaws and teeth must never clatter
and lips must never purse
for life is a curse
and You are the only nurse.
Coursing through the veins of this monkey flesh…
nothing but Your spirit; Your consciousness.
exist within me!
I know You.
