if all you needed was a delusion to roust you
then you've truly overshot your intention
life will always be what it's been
and the struggle of our souls remains as ever
to escape the material world even as it holds
your heel as you try to ascend
to enter what we call heaven
and hope it is not a hell to us who think too much
and live too little...
