holding power

i understand

i understand the
use of cold steel

i understand that power
which comes from holding
the power of explosion

i understand the need
to use the master’s tools
the tools which he took from us

i understand the desire
to become the master

one day, we will look
into the mirror, and
no longer search
for the master,

we will see
our selves
see that we
have never been
like the master

and we
have never
wanted to be.
