Who among us has not been plagued by hate, greed, envy, lust, self-recrimination? Who among us has not felt unprepared & alone? Who among us has not passed on opportunities to do the right thing for ourselves or others? Who among us doesn’t long for someone else’s bounty, including the freedom we “perceive" they have?
“The lamp is on, bright light sweeps" …. What a wonderful, descriptive line! With just one short line you’ve set the entire scene for me of one sitting alone, baron room, hard wood chair, pendulum of light swinging back & forth; being pummeled with questions. But we learn that the writer is being questioned by one’s own heart; imprisoned by conscience. The bright conclusion here, however, is the realization that we hold the keys to the prison within ourselves – the first steps to change and freedom from self-loathing. Once this level of awareness has been established, I suppose learning how to truly utilize those keys would be the ultimate path to freedom!
