what is the hermit searching for?
is he a wise man or just a wandering old man.
searching in the dark, lighting his way with a lamp.
the fool uses the stick in a carefree manner
to march forward. the hermit uses this stick for
support and to feel his way .
is he the cynic philosopher Diogenes,
who goes out with his lamp,
searching for an honest man.
he faces left, is the past of great concern ?
being an old man, what are his hopes for the future?
is his past a heavy burden, a dead weight
that blocks his spirit from living in the present.
when i cross your path,
i inspire a change of attitude.
consciously or not, this blocks or
limits spiritual growth.
free yourself from the shackles
of the past,let the
present and future grow.
do i suggest the need for meditation,
reclusive life, study and concentration?
nay! find your center,and your calm
deep to the forest lancelot went,
a sanctuary he finds
where he heals a broken heart
and finds his soul.
a sacred door opens to a sacred spring,
his inspiration sparks one more time.
look deep within,
search for that which has been
weakened by neglect. hold high my torch,
feel the sub-conscious at work,
guiding, illuminating the way,
consulting the wisdom within.
i am the HERMIT,
let me light your path
