Poetry Pleases: The Emptiness Between The Hard Rocks

...For long I pushed against either rock seeking to carve out of stone what I imagined myself to be... But now Masimba Biriwasha settles into the middle path.

Not until yesterday did I understand where I belonged: somewhere in between two huge rocks that seek to define my path.
For long I pushed against either rock seeking to carve out of stone what I imagined myself to be.
Now, here I am, at the beginning sinking my spirit into the middle path.
No longer will I be enslaved to constantly rising and falling, coming and going.
In the middle, therein will be my path: neutral, upright, and centered.
Now, I will avoid brawling with the two hard rocks, and through my chosen path strive to seek the ultimate truth of emptiness.
From today forwards, my nature is empty and silent - fixated in a state of ego-lessness and formlessness - in this mundane world.
