Reflections Of Self

If a genius chooses not to embrace his gift,

will he live to endure deeper pain


If an artist doesn’t strive to create and unfold,

will she die in a chasm of chains


If a Prophet loses faith and abandons his path,

will he wander a desert unknown


If all lovers grow distant, away from the heart,

will the world lose its hope

—so alone
