your messiah is lost to you

Your messiah is lost to you

in two-thousand years of ignorance

as a hundred thousand heretics are hunted down-

your messiah is lost to you in crusades and bloody jihads

the earth awash with the blood of the innocents-

your messiah is lost to you

in angry unforgiving sermons

as you harden your heart

against those who do not believe as you do-

your messiah is lost to you

as you pray to icons and relics

as you put your trust in brick and mortar

in churches mosques temples and monasteries

in hierarchies and bureaucracies-

your messiah is lost to you

in your never-ending spiteful debates

in your hair-splitting

in your slavish devotion to the letter of the law

in your worship of dogma

in your addiction to ceremony-

your messiah is lost to you

as you desire more than you need

as you compete with your neighbours

as you scorn those who have failed

as you belittle those whose minds are shattered

as you turn a blind eye to the beggars and the lame-

your messiah is lost to you in your arrogance

in your pettiness and deceit and your sins of omission

your messiah sheds tears for your loss-

your messiah is lost to you

as you try to turn led into gold

unable to pursue the true goal of the Alchemist-

your messiah is lost to you

as you accumulate facts

filling your mind with trivia

adding degrees and diplomas to your resume`

mistaking knowledge for wisdom-

your messiah is lost to you

as you forget to feed your spirit

letting your soul languish in a barren land

letting it wander in a foreign wilderness-

your messiah is lost to you

as you believe only fools and charlatans speak

of the invisible world of the spirit

of that which cannot be proved

forgetting each act of kindness

can be seen by all

if they have the eyes to see-

your messiah is lost to you

as you dwell on the emptiness of death-
