self-assured sighs
of independent intentions
with detached thoughts
and a removed direction
despairing the leap
toward a false loneliness
a deceptive appearance
to fulfill an inward drive
launched in deliberate slowness
a floating mentality
of illusive spiritual significance

with a selfish
ego-centered lunge
toward brotherhood
in isolated concentration
stalling steps
of graceful circles
danced in the sandy streets
of the forest
where people sing
of drunkenness
and saints and sorrows
to weep
for the joyful birds of winging
in this freedom of ours
to be clutched in human
but daring hands
bound by the truth
which sends us
to the cliffs
where we see beyond
and cast our shadow
