Little soul,
you and I will become
the memory
of a memory of a memory.
A horse
released of the traces
forgets the weight of the wagon.

Freedom

So free am I, so gloriously free Free from three petty things—

From mortar, from pestle, and from my twisted lord,
Freed from rebirth and death I am,
And all that has held me down is hurled away.

—Mutta, Sixth Century Buddhist Poet
