I will serve no one
Not even me, only living
Will be my lover

I will serve no order
Not even thine, only chaos
Will be my minister

I will serve no wellness
Not even mine, this sickness
Will be my mistress

I will serve no comfort
Not even bliss, only suffering
Will be my savior

I will serve no silence
Not for long, this voice
Will be my villain

I will serve nothing
Not even my self, impermanence
Will be my master
