The Second Choice
Breaking free demands two choices.
First of all there’s the decision
to oppose the limitations you perceive.
Yet, positions of resistance
are still tethered indirectly
to the circumstance you try to fight and leave.
Free your mind from both conditions,
since the first can’t make you happy
and the latter is a state without rejoice.
Choose to let go altogether.
We discover liberation
only after we have made the second choice.
