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.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
