A mantra chimes
Echoing the very fabric of life's essence
"I am free, I am free to feel the joy, the love, the pain, the sorrow"
An angel's fluttering wing
Tickles tenderly a mortal's ear
As silence's thunderbolt struck
The open arms of revelation bellowed, "Surrender"
The high road awaits,
With many detours
A hero's holy grail
A peaceful warrior
Ready to embrace the mortality of human nature
As faithful guide to life's riches.
