THE SACRED CAVE AT THE NORTH

Far far away from the known lands My eyes discovered a sacred cave Located at the North I walked And passed By many other sacred caves Seen at the South East West And finally, I arrived at the sacred cave At the North It was a very long and rough journey Other caves whispered craving for my entrance But I have always respectfully Denied myself their generousity Having arrived at the sacred cave at the North I couldn't resist that for long So I walked in slowly and had some rest The rest wasn't peaceful Because echoes from the sacred cave Pointed out to me that it is a sacred cave and that no one is allowed in until he has fulfilled the rites There I was Tired and with regret Regret of not being just A little more patient But here I am Here, have I found rest Here I am Here I vow to stay The echoes heard my plea And pardoned me So I vowed to stay in this sacred cave Because among all other sacred caves Seen at the South East And West This sacred cave Is that which I have Vowed to have my rest Sometimes when I find myself journeying through The South East And West Back to my sacred cave with my harvest My boneless leg cries out for some rest The echoes in these other caves Whispers me craving But no matter how Weak Fraustrated Lonely and Disappointed I become I never dare enter those sacred caves Because I know that each is reserved for only one One Hunter One sacred cave An ideology unacceptable to the known lands Today, I am still stuck to the sacred cave at the North And having my rest I find fulfilment A divine gift Offered unconditionally As I stand on my sacred cave I see many more sacred caves all over Curiosity compels me To walk into them But that ancient vow Keeps me away And away I vow never to walk Into any other sacred cave I keep exploring my sacred cave The Sacred Cave at the North
