WHEN FREEDOM CALLS

JOHN MCINTOSH


A moment arrives for everyone

When the scent of True Freedom

Touches their Heart

The fragrance is not familiar

ITs aroma very subtle

Yet beyond intoxicating

Never does IT diminish

IT does not tempt with false promises

IT is not a mistress of seduction

That comes for a night of passion

Then dissolves into the wisp of forgotten dreams


IT cannot be described or confined

IT lives in the empty space where the life we have known

Has been surrendered

Where the pull of the temporary

Has lost its control

IT does not bargain

IT does not ask for anything

But in the end we must give IT everything

All we thought important

All hopes and dreams and every illusion

Must be left on the alter of identity's death

We must become as NOTHING

NOTHING is Who we Really Are

And only the Awareness of this is needed

When Freedom’s aroma wafts past our inner senses

There is no turning back

No compromises, no half measures

IT is not a choice but an arrival

At a journey without distance

When we say YES to 'What Is'

And Life removes the last vestiges

Of sleep from your eyes
