Stop looking to others

Leave disbelief at the door

With your shoes and your socks

And walk fearlessly inside

This is a room with no locks


In this space we are equal

There’s no one to impress

If it makes you more comfortable

Then feel free to undress


Acceptance, the Grail

We all seek to attain

The many excuses we make

Become our only real bane


Take a look round the space

You think of as your mind

Explore all of the avenues

That your thoughts try to find


Suspend those connections

Hard wired and so false

We are not manmade objects

As we all have a pulse


Our literal world

Is fragmenting our spirit

Turning wondrous experiences

Into mere badges of merit


This journey we’re offered

Has no guarantee in place

Nor is it a trial to endure

Or a futile drag-race


We all rock in our own way

You have nothing to prove

So stop looking to others

To find your own groove
