Why Did You Knock
Ezekiel M. Bey
I once requested to enter in
A place unknown a place within
I had a guide, cause I was blind
I could not see what was inside
Instructions given to knock three times
So I obeyed, and did it thrice
Before I knew a sound was made
A door flew open, admission gained
Escorted in, conductors path
To different places I could not grasp
Three times they asked, was it my choice
I said, it is, in nervous voice
Once this had ended, I came again
Once more to enter a second day
After it all, I was requested
To come once more, complete the lesson
On my third time, I did not know
That I must die a death untold
But to explain what happen then
It was a miracle I rose again.
The mysteries, of arts, of Mind
Philosophies that prove divine
To seek and learn the lessons told
Improve yourself, a voice had echoed
It came so clear, why I had asked
To enter in, the door of paths
Subconscious thoughts an endless clock
In all I realized, why I had knocked.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
