I looked into those eyes and felt nothing.
The true test is the holding sensation.
I made contact but the heart did not spring.
Then you have finished your transformation.

What does your heart so truly desire?
My heart wants nothing from this living phase.
How you extinguished the inner fire?
It is dim and certainly not a blaze.

What force keeps this fire still ignited?
There is just a glimmer of hope waiting,
Hiding deep within my heart just resting.
What? Will you stop being so shortsighted?

I can not turn back on my convictions,
It's the way I live my expeditions.
