I Shall Go The Way I’d Gone

I shall go the way I’d gone
as a child, to the sky.
I shall let it blow my mind
To smithereens.

Then I shall be
only me
Nothing more.
As the sky is
Just the sky
Nothing more.
As the bird is
Just the bird.

“But you’re so intelligent!” they say…

This I do not understand
This exclaim, “You’re so intelligent.”
“So what?” I say.

“Serve! Do your duty!” they say.
I cannot see who I can serve.
Each and every being perfect ―
Who do I serve?
Tell me, how to serve the sky?

If there’s something at all amiss
In this world, it is this ―
You don’t see beauty ― it is
Yet, *you* are beautiful.

Not urgent, it’s important though ―
See beauty
It is everywhere.

As for me
I shall be me
Just as the sky
Is just the sky
Nothing more.
