Spiritual Renaissance

Sometimes you need to get away from it all
to make peace with reality.

I left the turmoil
and temptations behind.

My eyes are pure again
and my spirit pristine.

Sometimes you need to turn your gaze inward
to see what lies outside.

I saw the frailty of the world
and the same worn-out promises.

I knew I wanted something more
beauty, perfection, truth.

Sometimes you need to be in silence
to hear the call of the elements.

I filled my head with revolutionary ideas,
torched my antiquated beliefs
and cleansed my body of conventional expressions.

When I had cast off the last unnecessary burden,
I encountered the essence of things

And there I found myself.
