Stairway To the Stars
He who walks the path of Truth
must lose himself a thousand times.
For in the losing of his way
does he find within himself
The thing he seeks most earnestly.
He who dips his pen within the well
of Infinite Light
Will write a blazing path across the sky;
no words, no letters tall or short,
But all the shapes or forms
he’ll write therein;
That means a different thing
to each who reads this line.
So let it be, to all those who aspire
to Immortal Life in a Higher World.
They are first baptized many times
in their own tears of remorse
Their footsteps frequently marked
with the blood of their past iniquities.
For only in self mastery will be found
To climb that never-ending stairway
into the stars.
