after years of war and fear
seekers have but one conclusion
that this precious mortal life
is a virtual illusion

if you are seeking to comprehend
this intricate human experience
you will find the almighty ego
creates its own resistance

the ego needs the illusion
to keep you separate and apart
making it impossible to see
what lies buried in your heart

take a look in the mirror
do you see your enemy?
or do you remain oblivious 
that you share the same identity?

and so you ask yourself
what’s the purpose of this illusion?
and when no answer comes
it deepens your confusion

but for those beyond the barriers
who can see through the deception
comes an enlightened point of view
that it’s all in one’s perception
