The superstructure of who we think we are gets dismantled bit by bit,
Though it's a loss many feel they can't afford.
Many desperately resist such change,
Shoring up their reserves at any cost.
Some substitute loss with spiritual sensationalism.
A dead giveaway of aspiring newbies.
But why not watch your life's parade wind down,
Feeling gratitude the Beloved's presence is at hand?
