When did the world begin
To fall apart?
When did religion start?
When did we move away from the heart
When did mirrors come into play?
When did I/me/my comprise our day?
Concentration of self?
When did compassion end?
And greed become our best friend?
When did all for one
Become all for me?
When did we become uncomfortable
With being alone
When did we learn to talk
And become so ADD?
When do we return to stillness?
When do we release illusion
Of the world
And our own mediocrity?
When do we destroy the limitations so deeply defined
Let go of the characters we’re hiding behind
And find freedom beyond the mind?
