Ignoring the door to more

Please, sir --
May I have some More?

It is the season;
we're longing for light.
It's no longer enough,
this game of smoke and mirrors;
no longer enough
to simply carry the illusion of light.
We want to BE the light,
pray for the light to burn in us
and shine through us;
we long to smash through this wall
that separates us, to become windows
into that Divine Self that animates
and brings ALL souls to light.

Yet still we fail to choose to climb the steps
and ignore the door that is already there,
lingering outside instead,
mesmerized by our own reflections.
