The Earth moves, sky changes color
Trees sway at will, the birds soar
But I stand my ground
For my feet refuse to move.
I breathe, but I don’t feel alive
My heart swells, but does not beat
My head rises, but my eyes sink
For the world plays on the melancholy string.
Hither I walk, sometimes I run
The ground beneath leaves me undone
I want to fly, I want to disappear
For this life and its purpose, so unclear.
The darkest night befalls
For once I don’t want the night to end
Light brings the hope of something new
But it haunts for what is no more in view.
I turn and look back at my last abode
Where I had stayed in quest of an everlasting hope
For once I wanted not to move, but alas
Staying on was my choice, moving on my destiny!
The Earth moved and so did I….
