I the Ant

A dream am I

Bound by reality

Superhuman guy

Hiding in conformity

 

Inside a king

Outside a pauper

Angels sing

As I hover

 

This we believe

Ourselves over others

The ego deceives

Mental disorder

 

An honest look

We never take

Quick to overlook

Every mistake

 

Suffering and regret

Scar and blemish

Pride and neglect

Illusion finished

 

Beautiful imperfection

Glorious catastrophe

Inspired reflection

Unwound insanity

 

On our knees

We see clearer

Beyond needs

Wisdom nearer

 

I the ant

Before the throne

Tiny man

Head hung low

 

Losing greatness

Beauty surrendered

Becoming less

My soul remembered

 

Vision beyond

Prosperity’s lie

A humble bond

With truth divine

 

Suffer and give

Life in prostration

In Him live

Asking salvation

 

Slow desire

Stop the world

Prayers inspire

Listen the word

 

Be the ant

You the bee

In quiet trance

Of heaven dream
