A lost cage
with golden bars.

It’s inside a place
that has no dimension,
a glass without reflection,
the eco of no one.

Looking closely at the cage,
it decreases its size
it is now a micro-structure
you can put it on your palm.

It is not frightening anymore.
The more you look at it,
the more it shrinks.
It melts under the sunlight.

Golden drops join
an urban pond.

A light wind
reminds you
of your freedom.

5- Fly forever
6- Dear Fear
7- Our future selves
8- Strangers we are
9- The price of changing
10- Inner knowing
11- Detachment
12- The method
13- A cage with golden bars
14- Behind logic arguments
