Mother of Other
Your heart connects to one great mother,
wherein all hearts meet each other.
One trillion threads converge as one,
singing as they dance along.
A trillion me!
Ten trillion you!
A hundred trillion things to do!
A thousand million trillion waves -
A billion trillion paths to take!
So many these, so many thats,
delicious teas and fashionable hats.
A trillion trilion ways to find
infinite ways to blow your mind!
All these lovers, all these colors -
trillions to mistake as 'other'.
Yet 'other' is the dark mother,
with wrong and bad her twin brothers.
Many cry many tears
churning up in wrong-bad's gears.
Though wrong and bad don't stand a chance
when love you are, and light you have!
They'll wipe themselves right off the map
before you're even half-way back
to where this whole great show began -
The deepest, darkest pit of all
with one bright light, is clear to all!
So how to live a trillion years,
free of wrathful wrong-bad's fear?
Few have ever done the math
and fewer still have walked the path.
Yet you're the One, and now's the time...
so what is it you're trying to find?
Could 'trillion' others all be you?
Well that depends a lot on who
you think yourself to be.
A trillion yous that think they're me?
Or one who knows you're always you,
so clearly all the rest are too.
