My Path

While I stood on the high cliffs
Letting the winds mess my hair
With their invisible hands,
Enjoying, nevertheless,
Their refreshing caress on my skin,
I saw, a short distance away,
A colony of mer-people
Somersaulting towards me!

Lost in the wonder of the moment,
I forgot about time, about my surroundings,
About myself, about my burdens,
About all that which troubles me usually
And I became,
A Queen, one ruling the land I was born in,
One waiting to see how to settle this matter
With those creatures of the oceanic abyss!

The mermaids, having come close enough
As to allow me to hear them
Started singing their hypnotic songs
Songs which lifted up the waves
Running through my mind
Songs which had me forget that I 
Am nothing else than a consciousness
Inhabiting a mortal human body!

Then, the mermen joined in
And the product of it all
Was a symphonic orchestra
Whose notes and tunes
Vibrated in the very core of my soul
To give my mind wings
Strong enough
As to have me flapping them hard 
And flying up to the skies’ hidden realms
Where angels and gods grabbed my arm
And pulled me in their eternal comfort!

When the mer-people were done,
I opened my eyes, breathed in and out
Till I felt that my voice could be steady enough
To tell them that I’ve understood that they have come for me
“I am human; my place is here on land,
Love rests and toils here,
Love is what wishes the higher powers
And fulfilling their wills
Remains that which allows my heart 
To keep on beating
And my will to keep striding;
Go! Go! And let me bask
In that sweet misery which has enveloped me!
Go! And never ever hope of 
Having me with you
For my path leads me not to the oceans!
