    In the wordless chamber
    they feared Death
    desperately.
    Thus they clustered
    to the fruits of the Earth.
    Craving diversion,
    as if to avoid knowing why.

    In the wordless chamber
    they feared life
    desperately.
    Thus they proclaimed
    any given truth
    and swallowed,
    as if to justify their fear.

    He knew that there had been hordes of seers
    before him who set out to cure.
    Though, the sick wished not to part with their decease,
    as if it made them feel alive.

    In the wordless chamber
    he accepted desperation
    and the unpredictable manifestations
    of hope.
