Poem written by the artist:
Oh child of man, you think you can get by without my embrace?
You think me your subject and your survival is ensured in this place?
I tell you, your life will be hell, once I turn my back on you, dangerous and deadly as well.
Just walk the path you deem so true, if it is riches and power and fame you want to pursue.
But I will wait for your return, when the insight that I’m part of you burns.
I will always take you in my arms unchecked, when you close your eyes,
and give me once more your love and respect.
