anarchy on the inside
When i was young i dreamed of anarchy,
rebellion against legion's rule,
desiring freedom from hierarchy,
and gradually i found my inner authority,
that the island lives a part to the whole--
the unity of law.
I fought against external might,
where my rage sought injustice,
and i focused on hate and all unpleasant things under heaven,
until it dawned how cynically hopeless was this war--
anarchic freedom discovered climbing against natural descent.
Beloved reached down and grasped my outstretched hand,
help from above growing into me a higher order,
and my young self has found his anarchy,
escape from the prison of madness--
love built order.
