Sanctuary I_Recovery

To find the Christ within
That is the
Task of the here and
Now - descend to
Ascend, go in to
Go up and out you must
Find the right stair
To the altar of your
Heart and soul
Where only peace and
Selflessness dwell -
Tear-away the
Veils that hide your eyes
And see how
Shallow trinkets are, how
Far you can truly
Go without your
Car, your clothes, your
Ornaments and dishes your
Nailpolishes, your
Daily poses before
The mirror of the world.
You are self-
Harmed here in your
Own doings - there is a
Cliff ahead, look,
Look, it gapes before
Your very feet - you have
Left your health too late
To recover it.
