The delicious madness of waking up

Every last bit
of a ‘normal’ life
can lie in tatters
at your feet
and still
you find yourself
rocking like a madwoman
tears streaming down your face
teeth grinning in ecstasy
’thank you’
’thank you’
’thank you’.
Onlookers would have you committed.
You have found the deepest sanity,
travelled beyond the world
to the Truth of who you are
and touched the peace
that surpasses all circumstances.
You are awake
and you are free.
Let them call you mad!
One day, soon, maybe,
they will all want
to be mad like you.

Love and courage,
