loss death and resurrection


"madman" by ziadan

loss death and resurrection
that's the path i seek
one step and wham oh baby
that step leads to me!

a cycle in perpetua
a death stalked disease
and then some grateful heart remembers
seems to light up the night!

for now for now
there's nowhere else in time
but now and now
and if i forget
there's loss death and resurrection again!

i could live a thousand years
if i'd go inside myself
and let all those white birds fly about
so free but gone!

they've gone into a better place
a heaven not so far
but here inside this grosser body
let the subtle fly!

for now for now
there's nowhere else in time
but now and now
and lest i forget
there's loss death and resurrection again!

i wish i could forget this world
its wims its endless clamor
and live with nothing and nowhere forever
no loss no gain!

but that would be a cave for me
someplace warm and oh secure
and that's not what i'm looking for
between loss death and resurrection again
and again and again and again...

I can relate to that stanza. :) It resonates within, through me.

Thank you for sharing. Cheers.
