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.
