Pre-puberty years Playful innocence Warm ready embrace Quarrels, aberrations Rapidly erased An uncluttered mind Open, forgiving heart Reborn each morn anew Growing up, ego manifests Taught to be street smart Testosterone levels high Feral instincts prevail In the game of one-upmanship Need to win our obsession Heart shrouded in darkness Conscience whispers in dreams Upon expending our energy Recognising earth life transience We look at dark thought spirals A Frankenstein we created Remorseless devouring our soul We are astonished and dismayed Looking at these sunken vibrations We have chosen to stagnate in To erase negativity from its roots We stop the flow of turbid thoughts By shifting our attention inwards Into the hidden recesses of our heart In time stretched stillness and silence Negating the oscillations that surface Until we become a rippleless lake Choosing to remain for eternity thus In timeless time, the false falls away Fulcrum of our consciousness, space Our mind-body now an empty shell Cleansed of erst ego borne dark stains Reveals from deep within our heart Our true self shining, bubbling with bliss Magnetised by the healing light divine Suffusing all nodes with ecstatic rapture Boundaries blur between others and us We feel underlying interconnectedness Recognising in time that love alone real All other vibrations but thought constructs Entrapping our attention in myriad illusions Plunging our consciousness in delusion Thus we meld head with heart and love Twice born here now in the flesh, erect Earth dream life yet plays on in as ordained We enact our role in resonation with love Our vaporised self is immune from harm Simply because there is no identity within That that is, is a bliss mist, a living light Empowered by the sublime breath of God Thus we inhale vital life force with gratitude With exhalation in simplistic childlike surrender 16-October-2021

A long poem with no punctuations. How could one make out the beauty of such a poem?
