within the heart of everyone there exists a shadow

that covers with somber smoke the radiance of the rose

and bleeds the laughter from the song and rhythm of the soul


within the mind of everyone there exists a darkness

that steals the illumination from the lips and breath

and makes one ask if perhaps the only answer is death


to liberate the heart from the exile of the shadow
