Shamanic Initiation

Shamanic Initiation

A Poem by Dylan Cook

 The world's on a journey

 A journey of transformation

 Undergoing a shamanic initiation

 To free itself from misery

 

 The world is evolving

 The people are growing

 The rivers are flowing

 To the ocean of knowing

 

 It's a descent to the underworld

 Like the goddess of ancient times

 Being stripped until we're sublime

 To watch ourselves become unfurled

 

 The world is evolving

 The people are growing

 The rivers are flowing

 To the ocean of knowing

 

 The result is beautiful

 Realization that we are one

 And will never come undone

 Even in times of toil and trouble

 

 The world is evolving

 The people are growing

 The rivers are flowing

 To the ocean of knowing

Amazing. Sounds like a beautiful chant that could be used to promote peace and harmony in our world. I love it!

The rhyme scheme in the chorus, of sorts, is hypnotic and sort of lulling. I find myself wanting to repeat it a few times in a meditation chant or something of the sort. And somehow the slightly uneven flow, with the words you choose, straight from the beginning lends a sort of appropriately shamanic chanting air to it. Again, hypnotic and lulling. Nice work.
