Unhook the soul

Unhook the soul

The creature is tethered.
It tugs the chain taut.

It barks and snarls,
scuffles and whines.

It lunges toward freedom.
It goes 'round and 'round.

For an Enlightened Soul
or life itself

to free the creature,
it must be persuaded

or gain the strength and wisdom
over the years to slacken the tether,

move toward the axis
so that it might be

unhooked at the critical point.
Liberation (apparently)

comes not from struggle
but from retreat and acquiescence.

O child of God, let the creature recede
so that Love might unhook your soul.
