There was so much proving in my early writing.
“See how fancy I wield the sword so swift!”
Even a movie is a series of still images.
The mind is a funny thing you know,
it can make you think you are doing so much,
when all you are doing is standing still.
Movie of self hijacked by ego,
convinced of the important role,
wishing to be more than a grain of sand.
Here ye! From one grain to another –
do you know why we fear the desert?
Self or other, we can no longer tell.
