must we be human and keep running from the fate we long for?
Because truly being here is so much.
Because everything here apparently needs us, this fleeting world.
Which in some strange way keeps calling to us,
Us, the most fleeting of all.
Once for each thing, just once, no more, and we too, just once,
And never again.
But to have been this once completely, even if only once,
To have been at one with the earth can never be undone."
