I feel sometimes That I am standing on a ledge High enough That when the clouds clear And the seas are calm I can glean a moment Of the lost Atlantis And far above the city lights I can touch the stars And capture a breath Of the human soul
If you could for a moment Experience this elation This exileration Than you would come to realize That at most you know nothing And that simple fact Is the greatest truth to know
On the edge of this precipice Made jagged by fire escapes The world below seems small And falls away to nothing The grand canyon cannot reach so deep.
It is here that I find a segmented Illusion of peace And a serenity That escapes me so completely When I look away That I become empty A vessel without a captain A being without purpose On this ledge I have more strength Than the bitter moments that Fill the space between these interactions Here I can know God And I am not a believer
In these breaths of Simple Honest truths Where I can finally be alone And in that loneliness Finally find a path That allows me to stumble My way back to myself
So why When I am on the verge Of all that I am Of all I could be At this point of decision...
