Remember Who (and What) You Are

Nostalgia for an age
that no longer exists
will leave you flatfooted
in a time of great flux

Sweeping changes
with continuous crux points
hitting new crescendos

The machine is meant
to keep you disarmed
in a state of fear
and uncertainty

by conflicting narratives
unless you possess a filter
that can sift through
nonsensical discombobulation
to tune in
with the frequency of truth

The system is designed
to send you drifting along
a stream of chaos
and confusion

Cast in a minor role
of denying the strength
you wield as a sovereign
to combat corruption

The principalities of power
can only hold sway
if you shrug your shoulders
and lose all hope

Consciousness is a diamond
pure in form
that must be honed
to reflect a crystalline vision

It is your destiny
and karma
to be present
in this moment
when false paradigms
are being shattered

Each breath
is a rebirth
of genesis within

The script
for what comes next
is yours to scribe

Which path you choose
when the darkness and light
both scream for your soul
will determine your dharma
and what is received
on the other side
of this shifting reality
