A poem Abhi.

SILVA UNA by Shunyo

 

If I listen to my mind
I might believe
There’s nothing we can trust
And we’ve all got something
Hidden up our sleeve.

If I hadn’t dropped my mind
Back then
And given life itself a chance
Would I still hear the music
And would it even cross my mind
To dance?

I always thought that I’d be free
Without any desire
When I found the right combination
Of oxygen and fire.

Now rising out of silence
I hear the music start
All at once I’m dancing
All at once I’m dancing
All at once I’m dancing
At the sunrise of my heart.

If I listen to my mind
I might decide
To never open up to love
There’d be nowhere left
To hide.

Oh my candle flame
Burned bright enough
But it could not break the trance.

Then I woke and heard the music
The blessing of the music
I awoke and heard the music
And I couldn’t wait
To dance.

Yes I’ve been lost among the rocks
Along the paths of paradox
And it took the wisdom of the fox
To find my way back home
But now I’m feathered-up
For flight.

Oh let me fly out of the night.
Oh let the music start.
Today I feel like dancing
At the sunrise of my heart.
