This is a new poem I wrote. It is the first thing I have written in a long while. If you guys would like to see more of my writings, I will post some.


Nature’s Path

 

The wind blows, the tree bends
The cloud comes, the rain falls
The sun shines, the earth grows warm
The flowers grow, the bees make honey
The flea bites, the dog scratches
The man walks, the path goes on

The wind does not know that it blows
The tree does not know that it bends
The cloud cares not if it comes or the rain falls
The sun does as it does and the earth thinks not about being warm
The flowers, the bees, the flea and the dog
All have no thought of what they do

But man does not see the world around him
He just follows the path in his mind
Not seeing the real world
He only sees the world in his mind
Made from the images he took of the real world
He only follows the path in his mind
And he follows that path to his grave and beyond

To see the real world man must escape his mind
He must discard the images and thoughts in his mind
To see the world that is true
He must cleanse his mind and discard his attachments to it
This is the only way to freedom
To happiness
To eternal life
To Truth
It is the only way to follow the natural order
And have the mind of the universe
