What I am Now I am in the present-perfect Where what I have been And which finally reaches now, Turning into something of my own, My very own that makes tomorrow A day worth following!
As I rise with the orange glow Of an enterprising ideal That clearly is too ardent And too possessive to let go, To some point, I am unknown And really alone!
The real one is yet Already apart from here And part of the real world I am striving for, Separating the many Halves of me And sorting them into The infinite good or bad, I am, most likely to succeed!
Fully aware that The cause is the ideal, The ideal is the principle And the right key which Unlocks or fastens The door of immortality!
Now, retiring to my own care Within the tranquility of the night, I breathe the falsifications Of a censored life, inhaling The fumes of blue clouds of fire Which modulate the soul Of my ego’s desire!
