Defined by boundaries set by self
We suffer in silence having lost our ways,
Seek solace in teachings of gurus and leaders
Who are defined by their own boundaries.
We flounder, exchange stories with fellow travelers
Like lemmings, we trudge along to our destiny,
Mistaking as goals expectations set by others
Aspire to conquer great heights, hope of attaining solace.
Those who get to the top of the artificial goals
Blinded by the darkness at the top try climbing up again,
Others left behind burrows deep seeking a way out
Mortgaging our lives in search of elusive expectations.
Seeking happiness in trinkets of technology, a mad rush for speed
We fail to see the key within our own hearts.
Dancing to the tunes of puppeteers unseen
We have forgotten to stop and seek within.
The power to scale the wall, break down the boundaries
Lies with each one of us if we dare to seek.
Not to conform, not to rebel but be our own
Salvation lies in our hearts, if we dare to slow down.
Not to worry what we have not, not to demean what we have
Proud and content in our uniqueness, compassionate to others,
Breaking the artificial boundaries, armed with newfound vision
Find ourselves, happy, and light the lamp of a new dawn.
