In Need of Nothing

In Need of Nothing

A Poem by Novaki

A poem of independence


Give me magic

Give me peace
Give me light

I don't need anything
I don't need anyone

Take the cloths off my back
Scars remind me of someone from a distant past

Calm all the restless

Stop trying so hard

The snakes themselves are mesmerized

They will bring you peace and protection

Spirits of animals still roam this earth

Deep inside your own mind you store
Secret knowledge combined with your own wisdom

Everything is alright
Yes, everything is just so fine

Give me something elegant
Give me pools of water
Hold my breath to explore the vastness of outer space
Your imagination saves you
It takes your hand and leads you away
It saves you from everyone
It saves you from everything

You will never be hurt again
So scared and timid
I don't know why
I know exactly why

Snakes will protect you
They see your soul and know

You tell yourself all the answers
You have no need for commitment

You are wind
You are free

We are wind
We are free

So distant from everyone
So distant from everything

Open is the only way you know to be
The only thing connecting you with gravity

You will make your own self happy
You keep yourself safe

We don't need anyone
We don't need anything

You are your own protection
You are your own grace

You already are your own everything

The spirits seek you out
They call to you to when you call to them

You will be okay
You will be just fine

Shed your skin
