In An Abandoned Temple

In An Abandoned Temple

I come here to pray
in an abandoned temple
seekers are long gone

the road stops here
no reason to look back

on a dusty stool
a fly is still and serene
a shaft of sun light

I sit by the fly
just two of us

the end of the long road
why am I holding a gun
aiming at nothing?

I seek no answer
there is no need

no end to turmoil
being awake in silence
stench of the temple

life and death are alike
soul is empty

a grave yard outside
flowers and grass are all dead
so are the tomb stones

here I am to stay
and rest
