Gnosticism – The Way of Knowledge

Our freedom will
come
when we find
knowledge of
who we were
who we are
and where
we’re going
at light-speed
knowing

 

The Darkness

See child
how many bodies
elements
demons and
worlds we must
push through
in order
to find
the true
revolutions
of the stars
of heaven
and God?

Having fallen
into labyrinths
of evil
the soul
tries to climb
out of the
water-well
muddy
murky
hell

For thousands
of years
I dwelled
down there
in sin
no one could
find me
not even
myself

I desire
with all my
heart
to see through
the darkness
parting
me from
light’s
translucency

I am Mana
star-dust
who
has thrown
me
down into
this mortal
husk?

How long
must I endure
the hardships
I create
with my own
two hands
living
caught
between
the neverland

My suffering
I wear
around
like a body-bag
robes
clothes
and top-hat
when
can I shed
these tears
shed these
years of
mortal
fears
to be true
Divinity
once again
reclamation
palm in hand

The Light
The Darkness
I followed
the one path
and missed
now I strive
to find
the flashlight
in this cave
grasping
near-miss
wishing
for one more
chance

Mother Earth
wraps
me up with
its rat-traps
and
solo cups
i’m all drunk
up
i want to
go back
to the way
things were
when everyone
was angels
heavenly
church

So many
deaths I
had to endure
spheres-passed
through
before
finding myself
here
in this mortal
and coil
shrouded
in fear

 

Mixed Feelings

I am mixed
I feel it
one part good
the other
in-different
I want
to overcome
the apathetic
resisting
the urge
to quit
to overcome
so I can
be truly
superman
thumbs
up
Yes I Can!

They took
me
pure being
and mixed
me with
the mud
dust and ash
they took
the blowing
wind
and mixed
gas
they took
clear waters
and
befuddled
and muddied
with salt
brine-sea
and
disturbancy
fiery
me
they can’t
extinguish
it just
takes time
for me
to relinquish
the reins
on past
mis-doings
and reclaim
the sparks
blowing-up
ember
must

You have
taken what
is True
and made
it impure
You have
taken my
Life
and made
it torture
well
prepare
for
what’s in
store because
I’m not
here
to be your
whipping-boy
forever

Trapped
in a cage
my tears
lament
rage
my fire
dulled
i feel like
an alien
in this
world

But I know
we are one
and the same
thing
in this
cosmic-plane
flying
high
and low
wherever
forever
so let’s go

Give me
knowledge
gnosis
so I can
rise up
like a phoenix
out of the
ashes
and return
to reside
with the heavenly
beings
Archons
and Angels
celestial
realms
and
good-night
dreams

I’m here
to know
myself
welcome
me
to I
together
we
can Fly!

United
I stand
I devour
rotten
pomegranate
in hand
I want
the real
thing the
sweetness
of honey-meaning

I pull
myself together
up from my
boot-straps
i let
the one
hand
in
the other
clap

Divided
we fall
many-short
and tall
but
with clarity
truth-vision
we see
we are
all a part
of the same
damn thing
