The path to freedom

The path to freedom

There is nothing wrong with life
This earth is very sweet
It’s human beings who are at fault
Cause everyday they meet
With anger, hatred, power, and greed
They live each day in sin
Not knowing how to live their life
For the music to begin.

Love is life, and life is love
And god is all of this
But you’ve built a personality
That’s just the way it is
It’s your protection from the ills
So dangerous when young
Because your heart was innocent
And you could well get stung.

But now the mask has taken over
You don’t know who you be
You’ve forgotten all the love and joy
All the mystery
All your world is filled with fear
That just won’t go away
You do not know, it could be healed
Here, right now, today.

All it takes is just one look
At who you really be
Ask the question ‘who am I’
Then soon you will be free
To live a life of total joy
Find Heaven here on Earth
When freedom really comes to you
Your life has so much worth

    Hi Richard, I think we both have discovered in life something very beautiful. It is there for everyone, cause we all know deep within that we are more than this body thoughts and emotions. I saw this in the first poem you posted, and I knew we are brothers at heart. Thank you, my friend for your kind comments....peter

    I love that you provide no "answer," just the question. Survivor's guilt is a powerful force, but "what makes me so special" is still a valid question. A good thought provoking read - thanks!

    Hi Steve, I thank you so much, my friend for your kind comments. The answer never comes, my friend, but just switching off and asking the question can bring great transformation to ones life. This question has been asked by those on the path for many centuries. I appreciate you visiting my site, Steve....peter

    A great write ,crammed full of wisdom my friend. We that lived it, were saved and had our mask removed were blessed by God. You give back with your writings here my friend. I try to do the same. Readers that are young to the world can learn much from we that lived , hard , suffered greatly and were saved. They can if we tell them about it... You say it so very well!!!!!

    Hi Robert this is the beauty of being on a poetry group like this. Our words of transformation can be heard by others and they too might grow and become at peace with themselves. I thank you again for your kind comments, my friend....Peter

    It's so important to take that mask off and just be YOU. I try to live that way. But I have to hide from my mom that I am not a very religious girl any more!!! (don't want to break her heart). I enjoyed this one, Peter.

    Hi Andrea. I hate to upset people with my words but really, no one has the right to fill their children's minds with unproven facts. If one wants to believe in religion fair enough. but let the children find our for themselves. So many peoples lives have been ruined by this, And many serial killers are the product of very religious upbringing. One must live and be true to oneself. Thank you for your comments, my friend....peter

    Hi Sara. There is no answer to the question, my friend. but by doing this with sincerity it takes you to a space that cures all anxiety. How it works I don't know but it took me from a life filled with PTSD, and gave me the joy I have now. Sometimes it is the simple things that bring the most joy. I thank you for your kind comments, sara....peter

    Hi Doc. One only has to change their perspective by a fraction of a degree, and Heaven stares them in the face. Heaven is here on earth as so is hell. most people seem to prefer Hell. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter

    Hi Dave, I just write that which flows from me at the time, and as my days mature it seems more of this stuff comes out. I feel that these words can heal some who live in misery, and I love to write these kind of poems. I appreciate your kind comments, as always, my friend....peter
