WHAT IS THIS AWEFUL THING? What is this AWEFUL thing? I have arrived at In space and time Looming so large! Arrival so imminent! Low horns rumble inside you I do not choose you! Steel and inert So well planned, so inflexible You are the tyrannical droppings Of those who cling to certainty You think to force me to submit to you, but I refuse! I will not be ruled by you You think to force me to fight you, but I refuse! I will not bloody my fists against you You think to define me, but I refuse! I am more than the mind symbol you represent me with I am the learn-ed, loving god Within the boundaries of this consciousness And I wield the weapon of creation itself From my uncertainty, I hold all possibilities I sculpt the infinite fractal chaos Into new truth that cannot be anticipated My truth tears will rust holes in you Through which my vulnerable flesh will extend And you will become me I will restore you to love And we will grow together in love, For all time to come
WHAT IS THIS AWEFUL THING?
