The Thinnest of Lies

Image source: My private collection. Estonia, Lääne-Virumaa, Obja village.

As much as I secretly try
I cannot ever
Escape from life
The thinnest of lies
Is telling myself that I
Can finally find
A teaching, a practice
That can say goodbye
To myself
In the silences of the mind
The quiet meetings
Will always remind me
That I’m human
