You Are An Onion {poem}

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.
