Re Joining/Ascension

X marks the spot, he said it without dread
X marks the spot; he had one on his head
He didn’t need to have it, he didn’t even know
For though he wore it proudly, it was not there for show

Come do the dance now, dance eternally
Just find that starry rhythm and slap it on your knee
For though you may feel hobbled, and feel like you are caught
It’s really very easy, do it like you were taught

And round and round your finger, stir it round and round
For every penny you put in we’ll put in a pound
For thus you find the recipe, the ingredients you see
Are found here on the shelf with us and we sprinkle them with glee

And so from all your labour, and yes from all your sweat
The outcome is astounding. And that’s what you will get
For hiding in the darkness up here on the shelf
Is the main ingredient, and that is you; yourself!

Yes you’re sitting here just smiling, and viewing all below
For you’ve cooked a million cakes now and they’re beginning all to glow
And when the judges view them, how can the impart
A judgement to decipher just which cake steals their heart

For only one heart have they, and that seems strange to know
For when the cakes are shining they all give off one glow
And in that great bedazzling, of golden shinning light
The individual cakes have taken all to flight

To back where they first came from, and in that whole remake
They find that they are really, all just one big cake
With candles and with décor to set your mind alight
And your knowing in that glowing may give you one big fright

For all and every view here. Each bench and every shelf
Yes every judge and chef here. Is all! Is you! Yourself!!
For you have played a game here, and you have played alone
And each and every piece you move: it has been your own

And in that very vigil, and in your own deceit
The game has been a journey. So that yourself you’ll meet.
So winding down your last leg in the rolling of the dice
Just will it to roll kindly. It will do as you advise

For thus your game is ending. And you have played it hard
And the suit that you have played with: You can finally discard
For it will fall right from you. Dissolve into the game
For the phoenix it has risen; Ascended from the flame.
