That Night

There is only one existence

The night that I was by the sea,
I heard the sea speak to me.

The night that I sat by the waves
Watching the moon rise red,

The night that the waters were splashing
Making me listen to them,

The night that sea tried to wake me
Washing away my impurity,

The night that I witnessed so red
Calling me to rise after sunset

The night that had the half moon
Rising from the sea deep dark,

The night that red caressed me,
The waves sent me in a trance,

The night that Nature called to me-
“Truth is what all deserve little one”

The night that was so clear with stars
Brought chaos to peace at last,

The night that Nature gave me courage
to see clearly – the illusive world,

That night the moon by the sea I saw
Changed something within so huge

The night that Nature made me realize
everything is false but the Truth,

The night that I became Nature
and Nature the only known Truth,

The night that I claim existed
With such power and magic beautiful

The night that I could not differentiate
-the sky, the stars, the sea, the moon,

The night that Nature was trying to say
“There is only one existence, that is of Truth”

The night that something greater urged me
to tell what was his right to know,

The night that made me examine
the events that occurred in my life,

The night that I could not deny any more
the forgiveness of love’s actions

The night that for once I felt
there was nothing worth lying for, ever.

The night that dissolved my existence
into the one reality of Truth I will savor.
