The First Ride of Many

Sail to the soul-

on a raft meant for shallow waters,

and when the tide takes over-

thank it for destroying your ship,

thank it for swallowing your supplies, 

thank it for burying you, 


beneath the waves of your Self. 

Succumb to the sea of You.

Sail to the soul-

and then

absolutely drown in it. 

-Ani Khēmeia
