The landscape of reality these days
Is littered well beyond the natural realm
Of expectations, needs and ways –
And daily feeds us overwhelm.
Facts stand firmly on their own two feet.
And yet, we have become obsessed
And trade, for comfort’s sake, defeat
Of heart and mind with which we are blessed.
The very life within us calls,
A whispering voice of urgent plea:
Awaken, now, tear down the walls
To tame the fears, to set us free.
