THE JUNGLES WITHIN


By

From the dark depths of the human heart,
Find the eternal truth,
Follow your destiny, and be subject to time's silent upheavals,
Till your heart knows the truth,
Let the truth reign supreme over your mind and bodily senses,
Then you will know that you have conquered the jungles within,
For many a man-eater and wondrous Tyger
Brought to life by the heavy, cold stones
Laid down upon beating human hearts, thrive within
For one may shoot and kill and maim the Tyger and the Lamb alike,
In jungles full of trees they will find revival,
But who will raise those killed in jungles of heart,
Deep throbbing veins, pulsating for life, seeking reassurance of the
Giver's delight,
For a moment's lapse and this jungle will lay waste,
A forest fire, so full of smoke,
Choking life at its very birth,
So make haste, let not a moment part,
As life's stretch and Breath
Do not, lay apart.
