Enlightened - an Abecedarian work

Absolute are the commands you’re given,
Being told is easier than telling yourself,
Capture your given freedoms,
Demand more than simple life,
Endings are only and end if you reach them,
Forgetting certainly helps,
Gather yourself and come back later,
Have a little more strength if you do,
In the stead of your previous strife,
Just be more than you were before,
Kismet is only just one way,
Love doesn’t have to be a dream,
Miracles aren’t entirely impossible,
Nothing has to stop you,
Only you can stop you,
People will likely try harder than you do,
Quit allowing them to control anything,
Rebirth your true self and be free,
Sunsets and dawns to come will matter even more,
True happiness and enlightenment will you find,
Under the guise of what you once feared to be,
Very much like you were told not to,
Welcoming this new life is,
Xenial your heart can now be,
You can do anything,
Zeal and zest for the life you now lead.
