Quotes edit

  • Wanting a haven for myself,
    I saw nothing that wasn’t laid claim to.
    Seeing nothing in the end
    but competition,
    I felt discontent.
    And then I saw
    an arrow here,
    so very hard to see,
    embedded in the heart.
    Overcome by this arrow
    you run in all directions.
    But simply on pulling it out
    you don’t run,
    you don’t sink.
