Embracing my shadows


Oh dear

I’ve now embraced my shadows

I’ve plunged into them and explored them

as much as any spirit can

and now I ask for death

Yes, I want to die together with my shadows

and be reborn under a different sun

a sun that truly warms the heart

without burning the skin

a sun that lights objects and souls in their true colors

allowing me to see through them, in them

a sun that does not obey the tides of time

and welcomes underneath the variety of seasons

Yes, I ask for death and I ask for rebirth

because I’ve explored all there was to explore

I’ve understood all there was to understand

and now time has come

to carve this fluid understanding in hard rock

time has come to get rid of the useless and the heavy

time has come to become light and float in the air

like a winged town
