ALPHA AND OMEGA

I walked upon the waters
And there I saw
Through multi-monadic
Reflections --
Truth --
Bare before the onward flow
Of timeless eternity.

Truth shall make me free.
And truth will destroy me.
Yet, every moment of dissolution
Is my emerging self.

Who am I?

I am you,
And you are me.
My defeat is our victory.

What am I?

I am being:
Alpha and Omega.
What is, is all.
And, all is one.

I am the I am
Of eons past;
For once I filled
The endless void,
And coursed the
Contingent streams
Of cause.

I am the
Fire
And the quenching
Water.

I am all,
For I am
Nothingness.
