How far will I go?

How far will I go in letting go

I wish before the sky calls me up

Or before the mother earth takes me in

How far will I go in letting go

I wish before the fire ashen me

Or before the ocean waves gulp me

How far will I go in letting go

I wish before I sacrifice my breaths

Or before the pyre flame my sins

How far will I go letting in go

I wish before I reduce to dust

Or before I return to my abode forever
