"No easy way to be free" - The Who


The moon watches me with her jealous eye;
The garish glare of the sun surely comes.
My footfalls are loud as the temple drums
I know that I live, I wish to know why.

The lotus petals and the Bhodi tree
Are painted silver in the peaceful morn
A golden ray- and a new day is born.
Upon the earth I sit so peacefully,

Center my self, and search for clarity.
The first sun rays catch my golden robes
Gently warming my face, my long earlobes.
A euphoria, of such rarity!

I have found it, sweet Nirvana, at last;
I am at one with my future and past.

The author's comments:
I wrote this for school. It's a sonnet with a variation on the rhyming scheme. Please remember that it sounds best read out loud, so if it doesn't make you feel too dumb...
