ANSWER ( A New Skin Will Eternally Reward )

ANSWER ( A New Skin Will Eternally Reward )

Shed your heart your soul your name
For all are nothing more than shame
Lose your voice your own and only thought
For all are a lie the truth never taught

Hide your face from your own vanity
Beauty is not there only endless insanity
Hide from your past for your future is lost
For all will die the present your cost

Destroy your name and take on no other
For the only truth is you are everyones’ brother
Throw away your pride and all that you hold
For they are not you nor will they make you bold

Wipe away your fear and stand all alone
For it makes worthless all that you own
Toss to the fire the things you value as love
For they are nothing and do not come from above

Cast off your attire and all that you wear
For they hide you from the truth that is there
Shave off your hair the false beauty of time
For it alone will erase your pride and your crime

Leave all your desire your likes and your need
For they drive you to nothing more than your greed
Trash all that you are and all that you want to be
For to lose all is to gain all and to be free

Shed your heart your soul your name and your love
Destroy yourself and place everyone else above.

I believe, and believe that Christ, Buddha, Mohamid and most of the Prophets all taught the same thing. To be truly free we have to lose ourself !

    I believe an empty tomb and eye witness accounts of Jesus ascending through the clouds… make Him more than a prophet. I also believe you are right in your words… to the meaning of losing one’s self. Great writing Gregory.

  • Thanks Russell !! I always appreciate your comments !!
