Surrounded by friends and well-wishers
I sat alone, wondering at their concern
I had never thought about detachment
Yet some power impelled me to move on
I walked alone, through thick forest
Shielded by shadows of Mother Nature
I felt elated at the strange force
That urged me to keep moving
Your words guided my path
It seemed less wobbly, less arduous
I could see the truth of your words
They radiated and illuminated my path
The love, the attachment, the fetters
Wore off like old, worn out garments
The turmoil within… but the freedom
Takes me into a new land of acceptance.
The healing, the hope of detachment
Is more satisfying than earthly endearments
I express my genteel gratitude
For the wisdom, the action, your words detonated.
