The Voice

There is something higher
I can't explain
gravity and poverty
under its reign,
Not solid or visible
not holy or horrific
doesn't know
but does,
doesn't see
but does
cannot walk
but is right behind you,
cannot talk
but you know the voice.

It is not a man
woman or child,
not a book of rules
or ruler of your soul,
its known
its there
I can only tell you
to beware
if you think you're alone
you're not.
It has followed me since birth
its neither the moon or sun,
has no name or title
and doesn't want none.

I have faith in its mystery and its history is unknown.
I am Atheist
as no god, goddess, or icon
will do,
as no doctrine or morality can be determined to be true,
I am the spirit of its path,
the follower of its will,
the seeker of its destination,

my journey has no name
my philosophy no label
there's no guru who knows,
and he or she who claims to know is but another seeker
in the void.

You can hear it in your breath,
be quiet and you will see
its your choice and your will
when the Universe is still
you'll see the power is your voice.
