Is there some conspiracy keeping ego-mind's dreams alive?
Perhaps, but likely not without our consent.
Is a spiritual warfare involved in one's struggle to awaken?
If so, it's probably fueled by our own agreement.
Is there some terrific force constraining us?
If that's the case, we're holding on to it for dear life.
And yet this cosmic dream's power loosens its hold,
Should even a whiff of awakening's breath come our way.
