"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
- Mahatma Gandhi


































































































I Alone


What secret am I

How you take little pieces

And call it the whole

And I never say a word

I know what Iíve done


What a secret am I

But not to myself

And if I pretend to be too large

Or if I fear being too small

I must laugh at your praise

Lest I betray myself


I leave on a path

Iíve thought well out

I depart, on my way

And with every exhausted breath I try to sprint faster

My ears closed to all praise

And to all criticism that doesnít know me.


I run away

Too fast for any to reach me

And Iím on my way


Iíve departed

But not from myself
