beauty and madness
so inextricably intertwined

frenetic and magnetic
the wild one is she
attracting beings
from all ways
of life

inspiring many
terrifying most
her spiritual madness
propels trains
from their tracks

she witnesses the world
live in constant fear
seeking security
that will never exist
on the physical plane

she deflects these fears
and remains detached
from all outcomes

those surrounding her
grasping onto
material possessions
in this very physical world
she attempts to redirect
their energies

many deject her
as they fear her freedom
she is not restricted by
this very physical world
