METAMORPHOSIS

Take all you have,
All that you’ve earned .
Put it together
And multiply it by zero
That is the sum total
Of all your lifes work.

Take all your friends
And all your enemies
And throw them out the window
Then look at what you’ve become
Alone, yourself, an individual

Take all your hopes
And all your wishes
Wash them out
Like dirt on dishes
Watch the suds
Go down the drain
Rinse out the sink
See what remains

Take all your pleasure
And all your pain
All that is forgotten
All memories that remain
Clear them off your brain
There is too much junk
Taking up little space.

Take what you have
And count it as nought.
What you didn’t know,
make it your treasure sought
seek to recover all the time you lost
That is what it takes
to shed your old skin
and change
