WE

Amidst the eternity, we emerge somewhere and take wings.

Naïve, curious and unaware, we seek and inquire beyond.

In sequence and shambles,
Crawling through transient scape,
Sewing distinct perspectives,

We form, deform and transform.

Facing the Light and under the ephemeral shadows,
We live many lives.

Over all escapades of mind, surpassing self-narrowed barriers,
We ascend and align ourselves with the flow.

In abundance, in nothingness,
We miss and catch the secrets.

It is so dramatic and surprising…
Most of it is unknown, uncertain and unpredictable.

Reaping, unwinding and culminating all together,
We set the fire within us and leap into another sphere.

Singing rhythms, shining radiantly,
Living like an ocean, loving like the sky
We whirl, dance and leave this world all sudden.

We dissolve into the whole and disappear.
