Survival

Three years in Mexico
on the edge of a cliff.
My era is over...maybe
some seeds for the future
were planted.

I saw a flim
about the last Zapatistas...
old man exhorting the young
to not give up the struggle for
freedom...he saidĀ 
his turn was over.

A new generation
tilling the field of bodhi,
which is not about
success or failure.

Zapata was an honest man,
walked into his own ambush
with eyes open, said:
"My death is necessary so that
my ideals will be remembered."

The only thing that survivesĀ 
is the truth.
