Die to yourself

Every day I die tomorrow a little more will I die
It's a death I look forward to
A death which is necessary
And everyday I live more than yesterday
For Everytime I die I live more often


Everyday I die
I die to self 
I die to the world
Therefore I have more life in myself
More life than you all who do not die to self

He who seeks more life should die...die to self
Die in himself
"For Except a seed dies first it abideth alone"
Therefore it must die itself
For life can never receive more life until it dies itself

Why do u fear when the word die presents itself?
Like I ask you to take a knife to your throat besides yourself

To die to yourself
Is to be reborn from the turbulence of human existence
It is to be crushed under the weight of despair and to awake shortly after despair
Then a new life is born
A new freshness 
A new courage
And On will it stay
for a while
Until again you die to yourself

Die to yourself
It promises sweetness and makes you alive to yourself

Then you do not need to have those rude Awakenings of a door being shut against your thumb or stepping on a splinter of wood by yourself to gain a consciousness of yourself
If you die to yourself
Of yourself you would always be aware
Die to yourself.

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
