Have you heard the feather fall?
Have you sensed the light at all?
Have you thought where steps will land?
Have you guessed where you will plant?
Plant your roots deep in the ground?
Listen to the hollow sound!
Clapping wings now turn around.
Have you thought of moving on?
Have you known the light of sun?
Have you embraced the love of lion?
Have you braced your soul with iron?
Iron forged in red hot fire?
Watched love fall through wrought desire?
Fiery swords drawn in pure ire?
Have you learned the gentle art?
Have you listened to your heart?
Have you purged heart, mind, and soul?
Hate will always take its toll.
