Many do quest for a heaven to set camp
Sailing the mists that begets life swamp
Yet fail to carry their enlightening lamp
Alas! Get ensnared in life’s boggy clamp
Enlightenment marks the path of a champ

Dark shadows enshroud the access ramp
The lack of guiding light will often cramp
Man’s journeys towards bliss to encamp
Lost be the very soul of a spiritual tramp
Indeed darkness is a field we must decamp

It’s wise to overcome man’s spiritual slump
Ignorance is an egotist self-serving pump
This makes the consciousness grow plump
Burdening the soul with a worldly hump
Wisdom is a priceless and divine stamp

He who chases earthly materialistic clump
That physically pleases but spiritually mump
And hinder the spirit from making the jump
Will only end up trapped in a hellish dump
Man’s Spiritual self-awareness must revamp
