The north was impassable,
I just came from south,
The west is blocked by boulders upon boulders.
To the east then.
One lunatic ran passed me from the east,
A battle cry coming from his deranged mouth,
“When you see the Buddha,
You must kill the Buddha.”
after two minutes of this event,
came another a string of soldiers and a massive army came.
I knew not,I hid.
But before I did,I jumped,
Let loose everything,
Draw whatever blade,
With all of me,
I have cut someone’s head.
Within no less a minute or two,
My flesh and everything of it
On a whimper of a smile,
I see happiness looking down on me.
I see his jolliness staring,
Telling me I have arrived.

“Be at peace,
For your earthen body lies in pieces.
Be at peace,
For mankind will never attain,
Doing that which you have done,
nor sacrificing a knowledge that cannot be,
only a death from up above, that never lands only to fall.”

Kahit paano nagawa mo ang kailangan mong
gawin, sa minuto ng wala sa isip, na walang anyo ng punyal mo.
sa iyong kakayahan.
Nagawa mo ang tamang asal, hindi maging sundalo o isang lalake,
ano man yan ang nasa isip mo.
Yun lan, dedok at ang katawan mo ngayon ay
Nakasambulat sa lupa.
Galing mo pre.”
I know his face, I know his sash, loved this man,
I revered his legendary name.
Am I in…
What is attached can be detached,
When do we ever win if everyone loses everything.
