Texte: Perceiving your own voice means perceiving your true self or nature. When you and the sound become one, you don’t hear the sound; you are the sound – Seung Sahn
A distant echo over time
The single voice that none could hear
The whisper silenced by my fear
A voice which called me out in rhyme
As ink revealed the hidden crime.
Two voices that should speak as one
Yet kept apart and seen by none
Until words flowed from fountain pen
Nothing would silence him again.
His voice I called the poet’s song
A muse upon my lyric verse
As two began to then converse
The heart could know nothing was wrong
And that I was he all along.
