"The Fool and the Magician"
Once, there was a man
who had everything he wanted in his hands.
However, he decided that he wanted to let go of it all,
and take his first step towards fulfillment.
Everyone around him had warned him
that it can be dangerous.
They would tell him what a fool he was for doing so.
Pure and innocent, he believed his path
and headed off his way with an energy of a child.
So, was he a fool after all?
As he continued his path, he gradually acquired strength,
and soon became a magician.
With the power to construct upon his will,
he controlled theory, logic, emotion, practice, thoughts
and action to turn them into a visual form.
There are many different forms of love in this world.
Sexuality, partnership, friends, family.....
All relationships exist on top of duality.
There will always be two sides, positive and negative.
As if a small light was lit in the dark woods,
the chemistry of the relationship can create
a whole new world, a new atmosphere.
This relationship, however,
stands on top of two independent beings.
Their independence allows them to protect each other.
This bond is the fire that lights their way
out of the dark woods.
As the fire flames up, there is an angel hiding by the tree,
watching over them with his warm eyes.
