:: Possession ::
In a sudden introspective mood
I recall my greatest lesson learnt in 2006.
It would be from universe8within.
"Do not possess," he said to me.
And by not possessing, I became free.
For what will come, will come, and
What will go, will go.
Possession does nothing.
There is no need to accrue.
I recall Toni Morrison's Songs of Solomon.
Only by getting rid of one's own "shit that weighs you down"
Can one then fly.
"If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it."
Ride the air - I would.
With my newfound wings of joyful freedom.
Next, is to see the world from a new perspective
In this elevated position and make sense
Of my purpose, from the elevation.
