I never saw that clear, I never felt so strong,
A new impulse from times in dark,
I took me far, closer I’ve never been.
Pain grows brave, fear faces truth,
I became ill to become health
Looked from far and far away.
“What’s your wish, and which is not
Don’t hesitate, it’s getting late.”
And once you have to just not
Do what has been done,
What they all expect,
What teases you til you get numb,
Someday you have to see
What you carefully ignore
Be cruel this seldom time, and learn the best of it
Lose it and win, listen to the pain:
Why standing this, why any longer?
Here on my own, ever alone?
Why hold myself down, why strictly quite?
Enough I’ve seen and nothing done,
Why do not risk what is worth sinking?
Why any caution while on decline?
