On Night and Light


On Night and Light

Most men spend their entire lives
In a dark and deep spiritual slumber
A certain unknowable and unnameable
Nothingness eating them from down under

Once, I too sailed along those dark shores
Listening to tales of the sleepers
With wily wisdom they cajoled
Choked the hearts, drowned the souls

A life can either be fully spiritual or not at all
A man cannot serve two masters
So join the holy friends of the inner cloister
Avoid outers, the world of spiritual disasters

Abraham's might lies in spiritual Light
Veiled behind Light is the Word of Truth
Forget piety, says the friend of night
But how can I betray God and all that is right?
