We immerse ourselves in what we love
and find a love there waiting.
A love of all we see and learn while falling
Into a light that’s magnetic and never abating.
We fall forever and gather momentum
never once thinking of halting or breaking
when beckoning the courageous and curious and brave
Immersion too often convinces through magic
A belief that deeper and deeper, fathoms upon fathoms
can somehow broaden your knowledge
can give a light to wisdom that travels
at speeds your fathoms can’t fathom.
Until you believe your deeper knowledge
the knowledge that gives you meaning
is somehow the secret to all that is wanted
by all those who don’t study your journey.
Without warning and only in hindsight
do we recognize all that has brought us
to proselytize, believing our wisdom is better than yours
and seeking others who follow.
The same footsteps and thinking
experiences not thinking or asking or seeking or wishing
to learn of an others earned wisdom.
For nothing not swimming in which I had sought
can have knowledge that equals what my search had wroguht
Balance is not what the holy demands
but wisdom arrived at by only my path
and only by those who are near me.
Our tribe has found the one lonely truth
and your path is filled with deniers.
Not wanting salvation for simply committing
to that which is so bloody, so simple
Immersion in me is fealty to thee
and the only true way from damnation
