Being loyalWhat does it mean?Drowning together instead of alone?Choosing to follow instead of to lead?
Is it a safe harbour in which to linger while the tempest vents its rage?Or a currency we need in order to pay off our debt?
The child’s loyalty to it's parents remainsRegardless of love, loneliness, conceit or indifference
But what to do when choice rears its head once again?Daring us to follow the voice of the unheard?
Strange, isn’t it that loyalty to family so often seems more important than loyalty to self?
Preoccupied with others, we disown ourselvesRunning here, stopping thereThe light slowly dims and the long shadows dance
Wake up!There are no othersNothing there in the first placeSo stop this foolishnessAnd revoke your fear of isolationThat tempting voice of separation!
The dragon sleeps under the surface of the mountain lakeThe sea a distant memoryThe sky a nourishing hope
