Explains Joseph Campbell
‘If the path before you is clear,
You’re probably on someone else’s.’
The dignified , and rich with experience
world, offers you a compatible life;
you subdue a gnawing
hunger for chaos, for non
conformity, you feel
suffering in just being.
You will flip, he says
You will feel incongruity.
You will venture into a realm
Of danger, creativity, in a quest for
Bliss, which is yours, there Is no strife.
The search for life you start, in the
darkness of creative pleasure,
endure its pain and torture; love
and hate through your art.
you have intensity, you embrace
discomfort, marvel at your adventures.
You will experience the trials, and loss
Gain inspiration, and traverse that path
That’s yours, dignified, and rich from learning
Towards a compatible life.
