To Burst

To Burst 

To burst open, 

your own internal 

dam, to break free 

from all barriers— 

both real and imagined— 

you are required to do 

absolutely nothing. 

Therein lies the rub. 

For nothing requires 

something of significant 

effort, to stop and drop 

everything that is outer


This effort, in no time at all,

will become quite effortless, 

as you sit in still silence 

until the sound of the dam 

bursting, is only 

a faint memory, 

and you are set free.
