The monster which one has fought
Is that which one will continue to fight –
If one remains true to oneself.
But you may run to sea if the monster appears again.
Run to sea – bury yourself in the sand –
The cold sand.
Let the brine sweep over you.
And inhale the sweet breeze.
After which you may go back home.
And I guarantee you will feel better.
A lone time spent at seaside is never wasted.
