"You want to escape the confusion that you see before you. I tell you, you will never be able to escape the outer confusion unless, and until, you have escaped the inner confusion. And the inner confusion is your continuous doubt-indulgence." - Sri

Every fiber of me aches to fly
I stand my tallest
Yearning to soar
But Their words chain me
They said it isn't possible
Their words jerk me down
They tie me with invisible chains
I stand shrouded in Their doubt
Unable to break loose
My heart has already left me
It skims the skies
What use is it though
My aching body is trapped
The only thing I can do is dream
And stretch my tallest
Everyday I urge my feet to lift
Yet They keep me here
I'm covered in Their painful ropes
I cannot shed them
Despite my increasingly desperate struggles
Their hands hold me
While Their locks bind me
And so I stand
Wishing to be fee
Wishing I could fly away
