Oh wolf, you have ravaged for far too long,
Running through my mind, my heart and my dreams,
Stealing a childhood, shattering my night- times,
Tearing away at my vulnerable seams.
The Only True Freedom, Is Freedom From The Heart's Desires.
Travel light a friend once said to me,
'Yeah right' i thought with my big screen TV,
but over the years I've changed my view,
now i know there are very few things truly essential to you.
Swimming In Strange Waters.
So here I am, warm, supported, floating.
Neither atop or bottom of this new ocean, happy yet unsure.
Wherever I swim I feel the same distance from all points, comfortably unfamiliar.
Never fearing drowning, yet unable to reach my destination.
Innocence And Ignorance.
I hope to shield behind my Karma,
protected by my innocent grace,
yet when i look a little further,
the smile fades quickly from my face.
Counting The Days.
When i came to the lodge there were two ways to go,
carry on drinking and go with the flow,
or find myself, at last, from beneath all the masks,
and release my true self, too late, but at last.
