Scaling The Wall

Scaling the wall
requires that single step
with a bracing effect
supporting that nugget
of inner light
fighting gravity's pull to forget
you're the fly on the wall
seemingly not grounded
upward you climb

Oh my dear lambs
bleating so loudly
skeptical of the dream
fearing possible failure
nor allowing permission to fight
the trail of annihilation
this radical dream you followed blindly
the only way out of the bondage
your mind sweats tears
while disregarding terror
so self created

Few follow their path
mouth's agape instead, staring upward
not believing this utter truth, the real
perception of safety, unfounded
perception of freedom, in chains
perception of duty, a punishment
opportunity to see the other side
beyond the wall of fears
by their own inner voice
