The Kingdom Within Us

(within the realms
of our dreams
we who are not
as others
would like us to be
are utterly free.)

                                                            speak from the spirit, sounding off
                                      like soul-writers: remembrancers
                                    of the past forecasting the future
              with surreal logic
                                                                                                of an urban mystic with second sight
                  envisioning the tree
                                                                         of our kindred family
                                    of souls moving heaven & earth
                                                                       to chase tomorrow
                                        through detours of bohemian eyes
                                                       reading the mind of God to end
                                          from origin, while heeding the muse
                    of youth in all its hues
                     imbued by the infinite
                                                                      fountain of fervor
                                                    overflowing with the blood, sweat & tears
                                                                                                conscious of the kingdom within us
                                    in lieu of becoming
                                                 a paradox of paradise lost in translation.
