one wonders why oneness

If the sum of the parts is more than the whole
And some of the parts want a starring role

One has a question, it’s really quite small
For any who want to be one with the all

One wonders why oneness is set as a goal
One that one dies for, along with one’s soul

A goal that’s scored long after the game
When the self is forgotten along with the name

In trueness your youness is inside your head
Oneness and twoness is noneness: you’re dead

Minus my myness my self can’t be found
Above in the sky or below in the ground

One and one’s two, and two and one’s three
I’ll date myself first, before marrying me.

Hmm. I think I'll date myself before marrying you, too.

I read it twice.

It's humorous, full of confusion of mind, perfect rhyme with a profound effect. your priority about rhyming no way hinders what's in your mind.

I was out for days, so I couldn't read and write much.. But now again I come back with my battery charged..

Karen, if we don't date ourselves through our clothing or hairstyle, there's always dendrochronology! Cheers, MM.

Shubhajit, thanks for the compliment! The issue is real enough: people talk about "enlightenment" or "nirvana" or "rapture" without knowing what those things are, or whether one should want them!. As to whether they exist is another matter.

I'm delighted you're back fully recharged! Could you please beam some of that positive energy my way...

Thanks for stopping by, MM.
