Searching for Enlightenment
It doesn’t seem like we are on the same path-
You do yoga.
I blast rock and roll.
You inhabit a balanced life,
Mine is in chaos.
You sit pranayama in matching yoga togs,
I’m in gritty work clothes and muddy boots.
But we are both looking for the infinite,
We both seek peace.
You may be serene by the sea,
Seeking calm with measured breaths
and looking for infinity on a pristine beach.
I’m rocking and roaring down the interstate
Purging the assholes from my head with raging rhythm
Submerging in the sound
My spiritual packed between my life’s commitments.
My music is shredding the drudgery,
Burning out the jerks
Windows rattling, blasting down the interstate
I am at peace.
