In an anguished rush

Crazed by inadequacy

Driven by the desire

To own and consume

The human pursues undaunted

Applying strength first

And fearing failure, persists

In eating up the separation

Far ahead as a hopeful lure

Light keeps a measured distance

Each step taken gains no ground

Anxiety overtakes ambition

Which once quickened the pace

And the addiction to the chase

Dictates the reason to move

Not the Light – for its become

A distant memory – vague

Obscured by particles

Of knowledge and learning

The human, now a puppet

Of the movements of pursuit

Forgets the beginning

When they once stood still – in solitude

And the Light came to them
