the tired wanderer


the tired wanderer
loses the strength to go on
and in surrendering to hopelessness
is surprised
to finally feel at home
the troubled philosopher
finds nothing to believe in
and in unexpected silence
just smiles
at the still unanswered questions

the saddened lover
faces the loss of illusion once again
and in dying to passion
falls in love
with love itself
