The departure

July 2, 2014


I saw this scene, It was a metaphor to me. When the soul wants to leave The cage, and depart For the spaces beyond, It cannot wait. It needs no gates or pathways; Through the very bones, Through the grid, It passes, leaving behind Just the shell of what was once inhabited. The fence cannot hold it back Once the call for departure comes. Mute, devoid of the presence That has gone, The fence stands, just showing How, inside it, once, was a soul That is now free.
