Air Force One

So, today I asked the President
If I could take a ride
In his Air Force One airplane

The plane took off
It flew higher and higher
Through the clouds
Through the earth's atmosphere
Into space
Black space with all the
BRIGHT
SHINING
STARS

When we had left the earth's atmosphere
I realized we had escaped
The cloudy sphere of my self
And finally we were in
A misty white heaven
With bright white light
But it was peaceful there

And I knew that
IT
WAS
SAFE
TO
BREATHE

I wasn't alone
All around me was another
And that other
Made me feel peace and secure
And assured me that
I can do it alone

Some time before that
I had sent a question out into the Universe
I asked for help

Now I know that the President
Was my self whose permission
I had to receive to go beyond

The President is the self
That thinks the distracting thoughts
That feels the depression
That keeps the voice
Of the Higher One from being heard

When I flew out of the atmosphere
Of the self
Into space
I was really flying
Into the Higher One

And all this
That you have just read
Is the vision
That was given to me

Thank you Universe
For showing me the way to
Get the hell out of Dodge

Sophia,
Beautiful and meaningful message: Once you give permission to yourself to open your Heart and be one with the Cosmos, you will soar.
All the best.

Contemporary philosophical poetic extravaganza!

You are a simple girl. Lots of love.

Indeed!
I had a nice chuckle at the last line, you made my day.
Last night we watched Earp and Clantons wail on each others' heads.
Wasn't that in Dodge??
