you are an illusion

you take yourself to be a thing
an object, a person
but this is a big mistake
and a sad prison

you are not a thing
you are movement,
a process, a river of consciousness
manifesting itself
over and over

you are an unfolding
and a folding
don’t get fooled into
fixing yourself
in space and time
or you will never
be able to swim
and let go fully
into your life

this you
that seems so real
is all smoke and mirrors
a grand illusion
and a tricksters hustle
and it has you
like the charmer has the snake

c’mon, let us awaken
you and i
and celebrate
our death
and eternal birth.
