Return to Nature

by Peter Saint-Andre

Becoming natural is not degradation,
But going up to something high and free;
A striving for a total integration
Of reason, feeling, sensuality,
And will; a universal affirmation
Of active life in full reality.
I craft a compass for my self-creation
And set a course for what I wish to be.

(cf. Twilight of the Idols, "Expeditions of an Untimely Man", ยง48-50)
