I HAD TO BECOME MAN
I traveled through deserts for loneliness
And on mountain peaks I tasted joy.
The eagle taught me nobility
While stones slowly rebuilt my trust.
Among old oak trees I fathomed wisdom
While the clouds reminded me of the ephemeral.
All the stars carry my wishes in their rays
And butterflies taught me to dance with the flowers.
Deep waters remain silent in me
And snows cover me with storms of pain.
You rose like a dream among dreams
And for the sake of love I had to become man.
