Your only chance

Your only chance

We crave choice
having not asked

for birth or death;
choosing not the realm

into which we are tossed
and must so inelegantly depart.

Left out of the big choices
we covet the petty ones,

gather them to our breasts,
refuse to share power

real or imagined and rankle
under the yoke of necessity.

Only self chooses,
if choices are made,

choosing itself
over and over

while all the genuine Masters
point to non-attachment and surrender.

O child of God, your only chance at freedom
is the unremitting commitment to become a slave.
