Hungering for mass awareness,
I challenged the seas with an odyssey not too long ago.
With the flow of the wind, I begin to pass islands
harboring sirens and whirlpools filled with kraken.
Instilled with resolve, never lackin' curiosity,
I conquered ignorance to elevate with velocity.
And at the end of my journey, I reigned supreme;
but in the scheme of all things, the answer was truly lost to me.
I thought if possibly pursued a path in paying debt
--"coming in peace", cyclical passage like I'm Imhotep--,
I'd reincarnate...play through the cycles of my past lives,
improving bonds over bridges of my past ties.
And then I realized the world is not the way it seems:
war, wrath, lust, sloth, pain, guilt, and jealousy.
Streams of thought carry weight...inundate with pressure;
so, I meditate...demonstrate truth within my measure.
Severed not the essence deep within my soul:
strength, bliss, discipline, respect will often keep it whole.
But if it keeps it weak, go ahead and test the sins.
Proceed to search for truth? You'll truly test within.
Some try to test Jah, some test themselves in the face of Jah,
and some simply test themselves.
It doesn't matter. The souls that gather are irrelevant,
whether in the worst of heavens or best of hells.
We're grains of sand worth trillions of cells
in the span of the universe, the land where we dwell.
With the motive to survive, and just to stay alive,
we hustle and we tussle and connive.
At first, I devised with naivety to aid our longevity
and pass down the legacy with brevity,
but after epiphanies I'll let it be, leave it up to fate,
and concentrate improving on my destiny.
I strive ambitiously to cultivate the best of me,
incessantly revising an impossible philosophy
to be more pragmatic than abolishing all sin
and quelling the unrest in the eyes of my kin.
For yin and yang permeates throughout the cosmos,
it's our nature to utilize both sides to help us all grow.
To damn and be damned, bless and be blessed,
stems from the wheel of karma, cause and effect,
which is directed by our motives of desires and necessities,
subconsciously pursued to preserve our well-being.
So, "good" and "evil" motives are essential for survival,
and they prove that the ends do justify the means.
How the means are fulfilled may determine one's
spiritual skill, but all's fair in love and war.
Now at peace with this game of survival, I pledge
I won't be deterred where I'm heading toward.
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I shall hear all evil and fear none.
Call me Knievel as I utilize the ego
to carve a new direction at my own discretion.
My elevation is my soul's selection.
For my fam and my friends I spend divine protection.
I'm trading stocks with the Man above
as a young black buddha disillusioning deception.
The environment I stressed in is no more.
To go for the gold is the dream we were told to make.
But I was forced to take a road less common
with a greater goal than just fawnin' over flesh.
But I digress, my stress has left from my chest
and my breath has drastically improved
ever since I have viewed my nude mind, demonic and divine,
where discontinuities intrude.
They proved to confuse, protrude through the cracks
of my vessel. Their aim? Tempt me to embezzle.
I struggled with the notion of if I should dip
in the ocean of lust, though my goal is to remain robust.
So I've exchanged my trust in Mara for my own power,
devour his demons, relieving minds in all beings,
fortify my temple within the midst of Babylon
just to catch a glimpse of the True Self in all things.
To improve my situation,
I pondered much along my cultivation, gained a lot of revelations.
All for the resolution to stand firm
until the day my body turns to ash and fills a cast urn.
I'll let the past burn but let the lessons remain
so I'll maintain to be genteel and urbane.
With a broad sense of understanding, and though this life's demanding,
I'll keep withstanding so to grow my flame...
...while still hungering for mass awareness.
