Empire

Awakening, is what this life's about.
No creed or car or posh career, nor love
that's feverous and hot, are on that route
of gaining strength of mind to rise above

dead ends within life's maze. Freed from the trance
of machine-like habits, and the brain yoke
of ideas, choked with fiction and romance,
a man grows strong.Correctly conscious folk

enjoy those rare realms where a sense of grace
pervades one's ordinary point of view.
No thing, exceeds the soul awake. It's place
of wonder is the Heart's empire of You.
All is not right with life until you win
control to call strategic shots within.
