Cycle cycle you must know
The time has come for you to go
Grateful for the twists and turns
My head is spinning my stomach churns
One last round I think I see
The doorway out will I be free?
I stumble to the door so bright
Turn the knob beam of light
Out of the cycle I hit the ground
Tears of joy my soul I found
I got a chicken coop the other day and certain thoughts made me grin. When we live our lives in the confines of the mind, it often feels like being trapped in a chicken coop. It is so comfortable to stay closed in the coop of the mind. We become quickly convinced that the coop is a grand mansion. Constricted and confined, we move through life with the illusion that we are free. Sometimes you just gotta laugh and not take things so seriously. The door has always been there to open. We can get so wrapped up in the routine of life that one day we wake up and realize we have been “cooped”. I invite you to laugh today. Take a step back. Is there anywhere you have “cooped” yourself off from living a cage free life? Open the door. The universe is awaiting to see your smile. You are perfect, whole, and complete right at this very moment. Lacking nothing. Which came first the chicken or the egg? Laugh. The logic trying to come up with the answer is what I call being “cooped” my friends.
