Fleeting Vision

Since virtue holds the middle ground,
why are you found so far away?
Why do you stay in darkness,
fleeing from the day into the night,
hiding in the shadows where
no light can reach you?
Who can teach you to forsake
the emptiness around you?
You have bound yourself with chains
forged by your fears.
And who can set you free?
I see it all, a fleeting vision in my dreams.
I wonder: can you see it, too?
