Humble Proclamation.A Poem by alan khan
now hear me.
I have played the villain for a long while.
and have played the apathetic spectator for longer than that..
i saw fit to allow myself truth.
i've become master of this and other dimensions.
the integration of expanded intellect, and kinesthetic mastery.
i've ventured numerous times
to and fro,
between the planes of serene enlightenment and the glorious land of constructed reality.
i've embraced my being fully in the endless infinity of the universe and have done away with illusion.
i took the necessary steps forward and found that
demons and nightmares. do not exist.
i alone moved evolution forward..
but thought myself unique.
all of those years spent in peace.. and i was still slave to ego.
still blind to truth.
Love loosened ego's grasp and awoke my senses to truth.
yes. i alone climbed out of my physical hell and broke away from pretense..
but it was not a new species that emerged. i came to realize that all possessed potential, and that all might grow to such heights.
the problem lay with a great many restrictions.
placed upon us throughout time by others and ourselves.
thus, i rid myself of ego's armor, abandoned the ideals of villainy and heroism,
stood naked in front the sea and decided to move my species along with me.
i readied myself a new armor, coated in steel,
forged in the fires of ambition, passion, and harsh potential..
cooled by the ice of realism, joy, and detachment.
i knew that i only could
jump start the change.
and moved forward without placing any expectation in my backwards world.
but i cared. fully.
and was ready.
immersed fully in my understanding, respect, and partnership
of love's indomitable magic
i went into the world..
not a master
nor an adversary.
voicing my Humble Proclamation.
