Alchemist

The Alchemist, turn lead to gold?

You did not hear, what You were told.

False history it is, that You were taught.

The Alchemist, cannot be bought!

You offer nothing He desires.

Fail to grasp where He aspires.

Perhaps by way of explanation,

we’ll examine definition.

The prefix ‘Al’ denotes divine,

‘Chemist’ the student of properties of.

The reactions when such are combined,

lies foremost always in His mind.

His lab resides in His inside,

His tools are those of a disciplined mind.

Seeking no material gain,

it’s a purer Self to be attained.

Let this poem stand as lesson then,

to those few who would attend.

The Alchemist’s work was never in doubt,

for as it is within, so it is without.
