A Modern Day Mystic

Within the voice of loneliness
A certain richness can be experienced
That can’t be witnessed in company

When the silence starts speaking
I better listen
Echoes in the chambers

Wisdom is right here
In the present moment
It whispers to those who choose to listen

Greatness can be measured
With an inside thermometer
A finely tuned instrument
Of inner knowing

We speak once more
In the shadows
And valleys of fallen kings

Where greatness is measured by the good deeds of men
Fallen a long time ago
Who’s destiny was lived
And now preached by false prophets

Let the pain humble You into Your true beings
Only then You can truly start receiving
