life and times . . . . a waverider's perspective

An Ode To Fear

An Ode To Fear

You ruled the world, had us bound and gagged

But you didn’t count on my being ‘bad’

Boldly challenging your authority


I couldn’t take your word as rote

When I saw its core as mirrors and smoke

False Evidence Appearing Real


Your strong persuasion often made me sick

So I jumped the ship when I sensed a shift

Away from your tyrannical rule


Your harsh instruction has served us well

Taught us deeply the error of choosing to sell

The only thing we possess that’s Real


I do not harbor ill will or hate

For that old emotion is yours, too late

To stop the wave of Light that surges


The gig is up, my lessons learned

Your tutelage appreciated, graduation earned

Time now to get back Home


Fare thee well, I say, but no longer here

Some other school now is in need of Fear

To round out their curriculum


These living grounds have hosted enough

Your destruction and strife has really been tough

Our groundkeepers will be quite busy


Your time is done; we now choose our own ways

Your subtle influence no longer rules our days

A happier life shall be had by all!


Onwards and upwards we now climb, reborn

This time unshackled, truly free to soar

To ever greater Heights


Again, no bitterness stains my joy

I get that your purpose – and your nefarious ploys

Were all part of The Lesson Plan


So Good-Bye at last, have a nice safe trip

To your new employment, with your carrots and sticks

Time for us to grow up, be our own taskmasters


Someday we’ll catch up, you and I, in some far-off Matrix

I may be called in to help a batch of lost students

Find their way out of your maze


A degree is great, but only has worth

If applied in life, offered up to serve

Our Collective Soul, other Aspects


Till then, Old Friend, and Enemy Mine

We’ve both fulfilled our roles in the Plan Divine

I look forward to both our vacation times!!!
