The Fool

Walk bravely into the night
Everyone walks easy in bright sunlight

Run, run faster than your thoughts
Being a fool is the only way to overcome intelligence
And pride
And all else that stops you from moving

Because in your journey,
your ungraceful stumble
And your undignified flight
In your crazy altitudes and gasping dives

In all of these paths
You’re shaping your life
And writing who you are
In bloodied strokes and mud splashes
And tears staining your soul everlastingly

So walk blindly
And unthinkingly
Leave pride, dignity and all that you know as life,
Far behind
And be life in your moving, instead of your remembering

Be that artist
Because the world turns from detractor
To audience
And back

But few dare to BE.
