    Along the Way

    Time is running out
    The sun gracefully sinks
    Behind the ancient sacred stones
    But I think I've made it
    And this is what I have to show
    For my treks and toils

    Whoever was watching should know
    That I did this for me
    Not for the wealth or the glamour
    For there was none of that
    But to prove to myself
    That I was good enough

    I couldn't always see the way
    Much like looking through a keyhole
    I could only see a bit at a time
    But what I saw was beautiful
    And kept me moving forward
    When I wanted only to give up

    I've reached a shooting star
    That some work for a lifetime
    And never achieve
    I would do it again
    A thousand times over
    For the experience was amazing

    Told you it would be a little nuts.


    So many places, which way?
    Towards the left?
    Towards the Right?
    Too many choices, all right here.

    The blind lady beckons,
    The owl takes flight.
    Through the keyhole is laughter,
    A hand moves amongst the trees.

    How do I get home?
    So many choices,
    Too many voices.
    Where can I go?

    The clock ticks down.
    The sun is setting.
    The child is going home.
    Which home is mine?

    A key hangs from the moon,
    Too high to reach.
    The night lilies open,
    The sun disappears.

    Scream to the night,
    Fall to the ground.
    Trapped, shivering, cringing,
    Inside my fractured mind.

    Pink Sky at Night

    A lilac roses' enchanted message;
    sings of love at first sight.
    But your eyes are blinded by a fold,
    and your head is full of past hurt.
    Am I destined to love thee more?

    Follow your instincts.
    But let my owl be your guide
    for he hears what is not spoken,
    and sees without eyes.

    I would jump the moon,
    and swim the deepest sea,
    blow a wish upon a weed,
    to obtain the key to your soul.

    I will walk the stairway to your heart
    and row to your core.
    Please stop hiding.
    I see you beneath your costume

    I will not fear our time is setting,
    for you whisper promising words.
    "Pink sky at night is a sailors delight"
    your promise of a brighter tomorrow.

    Unbind My Eyes
    Unbind my eyes that I might see
    the path. A road that leads me to
    my heart. Apart from that I need a key
    to free me to stride boldly through.

    I’ve taken time to smell the rose
    that glows beneath a dusty moon,
    Whose lifeless ancient wisdom knows
    nothing that will promote my quest.

    For what I seek exceeds the bounds
    of wisdom, logic and the like.
    Unlike the world of sights and sounds
    The destiny of soul transcends all tests

    The Place Where Dreams Are Made

    Its time for bed
    Its time for sleep
    Its time to rest
    Its time to leap

    Time to go to the place where dreams are made

    I’ve got the key
    I’ve got the time
    I’ve got my thoughts
    I’ve got my mind

    Ready for the place where dreams are made

    The wind howls and wails
    Blows away reality,
    And pushes on the sails

    Sailing, Sailing
    Through a sea of stars

    And to the place where dreams are made

    I dream you there
    I meet you there
    I know you there
    I love you there

    We’ve been apart forever
    But there we are together

    In the place where dreams are made.

    Man's Desolation

    I was haunted by beautiful thoughts
    things that most men dreamt of dreaming -
    I mused on love and gold; they, I sought,
    the bright treasures always gleaming.

    This fantasy, a beautiful place,
    was joy-filled, but not much longer.
    It once was a place where children race;
    the weak no longer turn stronger.

    The mighty, lame; old men were young here -
    they ran in fields; they're old once more.
    The brave of heart become filled with fear,
    because they know not what's in store.

    The gods above weep at what they see -
    flowers wilting like no age past.
    Monsters chase the guiltless, as they flee.
    Love and honor become placed last.

    The sun shines, then dims again to dark.
    It no longer returns again.
    Wickedness has left its vile mark,
    a mark that no man can defend.

    The fiend called man rules all thoughts with lust,
    not realizing what they destroy.
    Strong bounds of love, purity, and trust,
    the creatures no longer deploy.

    In the dark name of a greater good
    the corrupted burn with their hate;
    charring, cutting their soul where they stood,
    mankind willingly damns his state.

    Beautiful land, a dreamworld of lore
    man breaks, not knowing what's at stake.
    Destroying all those past worked for,
    man proves that all that's good does break.

    By the time we - broken - see our flaw,
    the time for change will have then passed.
    Not accountable, there is no law.
    So now I choose to sail half-mast.
