Deliverance Through Surrender
Deliverance Through Surrender

Deliverance through surrender

Order re-restored

My true self is now in form

Whole, wholesome, pure

Unchanged, or rather back to the original form

Self before me, before time

Unchained, or rather the simple realization

That there were no chains

Except of my design

No inner or outer

And certainly no I in the center

Back to the source, mother lode

My self, struggle, pleasure and pain

Fire and brimstone

Extinguished in a deluge of tears

Strangely salt has made the Self-sweeter
