Heaven, Hell And Earth

Soft glow of warmth and light and birth
from which arises heaven, hell and earth
and the desire to follow such a path
that leads to one
and then that one is known.

Do you ever feel like I;
did the thought arise,
stop the ride and let me off
to deeply rest,
make liberation the only path and object
of this man's hell like earthly quest?

Soft glow of warmth and light and birth
from which arises heaven, hell and earth
and the desire to find in heaven's blest
a deep and lasting
peaceful rest.

Do you ever feel like I;
did the thought arise,
stop the ride and let me off
to deeply rest,
make liberation the only path and object
of this man's heavenly earthly quest?

Soft glow of warmth and light and birth
from which arises heaven, hell and earth
and the desire to find in earthly breast
a deep and lasting
peaceful rest.

Do you ever feel like I;
did the thought arise,
stop the ride and let me off
to deeply rest,
make liberation the only path and object
of this man's earthly quest?

Soft glow of warmth and light and birth
from which arises heaven, hell and earth
and the desire to follow such a path
that leads to One
and then that One is known
in deep and everlasting rest.

Well David it's good one but why the repetations? A thought-provoking poem.
