Passage

Our constant march towards infinity,

Seems to have jeopardised the real identity.

What are we sent for?

Is it to experience the exuberance of Nature?

Or to plunge into an eternal race of rivalry,

Where a man devours his divine self,

And strives to show his supermacy.

Really a blind race, full of strife,

That has soaked the sap of human life.

O, Misguided soul,

Listen patiently the songs of divinity,

That’ll subdue the passion of brutality,

And lead you to the Great White Throne,

Which all of us must vie to own.

Who has seen the wind?

Neither I nor you.

But when the leaves

Hang trembling

The wind is passing through.

Neither you nor I.

But when the trees bow

down their heads,

The wind is passing by.
