I have no doors yet I am reached from everywhere,
You call me ignorant and eccentric yet my words lift up your burden,
I seek not influence or recognition, but only to set your soul free,
For I fear the Man who is consumed by the weighing flame of his own knowledge and the sword of his immeasurable speech.
Once these two gates open there is no turning back,
This time it is tongue against tongue,
Mind against mind,
The prophets blood fulfills the pages of his foresight and visions,
No Man is a desert or an Island,
Many will seek you through the labyrinths of your fire and teachings.
There is a time to be vigilant as well as a time to become silent,
A Man can not serve two Masters...you must choose one or the other,
Many will descend upon your abodes and dwelling to judge and be your own executioners,
When in the past you were their shelter and refuge,
In the end the Action forevermore reflects the intention.
The lines on my soul and face may change....but never my destination,
As waters flow amorphous and untainted from the mountains so shall my realities and perception,
Remember that when you abandon me you are only abandoning yourself,
Whenever you are judging me you are judging and blinding yourself,
All the dirt and the gold in the world can not uncover what has been divulged and done.
Ignore my words and soul all you want...For the eye above us is always watching and measuring everything,
I row with the winds of my will and higher calling,
You can not control everything and everyone once the first spark falls,
For truth has no real friends in the fleeting house of lies. words by John Restrepo
