In shame you walk the river of emptiness

In rage you burn into nothing

Through guilt you weave a lifelong shadow

And by fear you stand — meaningless

Twisting in a trance

Knotting up in a firm stance

Since the beginning of time and space

From the naught to all

While from grace there was no fall

Freedom is fleeting

A lost moment

Until you return

To the center

The pillar of emptiness

Where fear meets bliss

Rage meets joy

Shame meets pride

And guilt marries truth

In the endless day and the endless night

All feelings disappear

What is left is right


A paradox:

Nothing at all
