Peeling Back Layers: Poetry

The realization
when it occurred
was swift:


All these things
I have not suffered
much in this life


having been born
in self-proclaimed
the First World


Therefore,
I paused in humility
and in thankfulness


Then I followed
my inner anger to take
me towards its Source


At its center,
I found a glowering hatred
for my manifested self


My focus now is unraveling
this result of ignorance 
regarding the Divinity within.
