Mantra for the Pages

I am not a chess piece,
to be bandied about like paper towels,
napkins for messy hands

I am a person
I am a dream
There is no belonging, required or conceived
There are only reeds in rivers

I am the river and the reed.
I am no better than a tree,
and one day I will return there
to the place where the sweat of the gods take me.
