You Are An Onion {poem}

June 6, 2017

You are an Onion.
You are made up of layers.
Built up over time--
Your own personal purveyor
Of beliefs and experiences,
Memories and Masks,
Fears, Absolute truths.
Roles, and self-imposed tasks.
 
This baggage we carry
Gets compounded and added;
Daily, monthly, yearly
And our onion gets padded.
 
It is an unavoidable process--
A natural evolution.
But it can be unraveled
For soul resolution.
 
“How do I get rid
of this baggage?” You ask.
“How do I take off
All of these unwanted masks?”
 
You have to wake up
You have to be willing to look,
To unravel, dig up,
Investigate and unhook.
The happenings all around you,
Take a look in the mirror.
Be willing to self-examine
Let go of attachment and fear.
 
You are a beautiful being
On a magical ride.
On the quest of a lifetime
To unravel and unwind.
To scratch off the build up
Remove the scale and lime.
That hides your shining light
Under the gunk and the grime.

Your Inner light will be uncovered
As you work to unbind
The filters that cloud your senses
And impact your mind.
 
The more work you do,
The more committed you are
In your quest to discover
Who you truly are,
You’ll peel off the layers
Letting go of all you are not.
You can unlearn and release
Eons of beliefs that you bought.
 
Be persistent and determined
As you keep chipping away
Removing chunk by chunk,
Fewer layers will get in your way.
 
You will blow through barriers;
Remove self-imposed limitation;
Prove that you can defy boundaries;
And achieve belief emancipation.
 
You’ll get closer to your truth
To the core of your authentic being
Because living with eyes wide open
Is mind-blowingly freeing.
