Going Forth

And what is the home?
When the heart longs for homelessness,
what does it mean?
To leave the brick home, loved ones,
put on robes, depart the world?
No, dear friends, it is deeper than that.
To go forth from home, into homelessness,
is none other that Nibbana.
Burden of form, feeling, thought, formations,
abandoned one last time, to be home no more.
