Haunted by the quiet desperation,
Confounded by the unrevealed purpose
Of this exhausting journey...
Oblivious to the subtler shades of meaning,
To sustain and inspire,
I walk into this
grey twilight that knows neither
victory nor defeat.

The blues lift,
as enlightenment dawns:
Launching into the winds of life,
I realize that in the twisting kaleidoscope,
I am forever,
an inhabitant of eternity.
There are no endings.
Only new beginnings.
