Out of the cave

Out of the cave

Sometimes you spend ages of your life inside a cave

without even realizing that what you are seeing is only a pale reflection

of the real world outside

and what you think reality is but an illusion that fear has helped weaving in your mind

At other times you well-know you are trapped in a cave

and you scratch your head to try to find a way out

you try to tear down walls and to dig holes in the ground

but you remain in nonetheless

And one day, suddenly, you realize you’re out

and you breathe your first breath out of the cave

marvelling at how easy and natural it is to walk outside

and how beautiful the world is in truth
