Walking beyond Intention 
 The strength giving vision
 is fading away after decades
 of so much struggling to do it right
 passing the desert of despair
 finding myself still being alone

 The intention of self expression
 going beyond limitations, -
 of personal belongings and needs
 seems not yet to be fulfilled
 'walking the talk' is all left to be done

 The ultimate expression on the path
 might be the one of just being
 without talking, writing or doing
 just being aware of being alive
 observing the observer observing

 Steps of jumping one's shadow
 will not be needed or be intended
 intention requires an imaginary goal
 the center point is not determinated
 'walking' doesn't depend on directions

 Are my words reaching a final end?
 Was I writing in solitude just for myself?
 Giving answers to my own questions
 pronouncing the unpronounceable
 transcending void and abundance

 As the last question dilutes in plenitude
 what else could there be said? - - -
 The sun will arise tomorrow morning
 as it happened today and yesterday
 is there anything more important than this?
