If you imagine yourself to be someone,

you might become what you imagine.

In the same way that chasing after dreams,

has you running after them

but when the dream starts chasing you

it might become a nightmare.

People think they own their existence

but it has a mind of its own.

The answer is right under your nose

and you have a cold.

It is not enough to possess power

it must be expressed

and words seldom communicate

what needs to be heard.

Any deliberate action

to acquire power

usually saps a person of their strength

but discovery and acceptance

of this source

never makes you weak—it only grows

like a plant, climbing towards the sun

without thinking

like a boy, becoming a man

and a man

becoming something else

entirely.
