Where's Our Salvation?







DAMNATION


nuclear clock

close to midnight

our world

science fiction meets disaster

masterpiece, molding

food shortage of global proportions

debt

fragmentation

fragile world

pulses

psychopathic power w/o soul

beyond willful ignorance

the unraveling

a project of human extinction

all, then, is doom & gloom

see the end approach

become present to the reality

we are in,

join all the dots

of this pre-n-post pandemic pathology

losing control

into nodes of insanity

but don't let it

terrify, as

everything that happens

is indeed a blessing

4 erasure of pernicious pasts

in the present

total breakdown

of (dis)order



SALVATION


there is no redemption

only

paradigm shift

so explore the anarchy of freedom

far beyond the limits

of nowhere to hide

from the wrath of Asaase Yaa

(Nana Aberewa, Gaia enraged)

still

let fear go

know what is continuity

& what is ending

don't argue w/ death

be aware

cultivate the wisdom of the heart

be—at love, always

saints of lost souls -

search

but don't rescue

others

(your very own self)

must find the way

solely

in sacrifice of I,

in other words,

soothe

but don't salve

others

must discover

there’s no salvation here

in this liberation

we are already, now, free

if we just awaken

to that fact

we are

no—thing in this (will-full) dream

affects the dreamer

consciousness

cannot die.
