Treasure Island

Pamuditha Zen Anjana

(15-08-1988 / Colombo, Sri Lanka)

Rebirth


I was alone,
rusting in heaven...
blinded by illusions of love.
bound with chains of hope.

I was asleep,
dreaming aloud...
encouraging myself to breathe.
reaching for the control within.

I was recollecting,
running in circles...
trying to prove myself to the world.
working to gain the ultimate trust.

I was defining,
turning towards undefined light...
confused by how confused I was.
bamboozled by the complicated signs.

Now I'm inside the shell,
emptying my feelings...
starting to decapitate my sight.
imagining the realms of life.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
