Eyes closed Blinded by violent sun rays The land seems foreign But you own and nurture it Now you walk its valleys and peaks With your soul as your only guiding light
They think you can't see But you've survived centuries Inside the deep seas You're an old soul Perhaps odd too But one thing for sure You've had too much to see
Your eyes filled with desert sands Mixed with water from the oasis You gasp for air For long you've had oxygen supplied to you Food chewed for you and fed to you as pulp Now you want to take control And once again throne the chair
Fists clenched As if you'd just woken up From a terrible dream The whole neighborhood awake Because of your loud screams How far did you sleepwalk And strayed from your spiritual beam
You think they wanna open your fists And read the secret seams The exotic path on your palms A sacred pact between yourself And your originator Now you choke From all the fear you've generated
To your surprise Everyone around you is smiling And you immediately ask yourself "Are these people happy or are they lying Pretending to rejoice when they're only gathered here to watch me dying"
"Welcome to the puzzle game" A voice inside you says "The only baffling factor here Is that you are the puzzle And the puzzle is you The world is but a mold Complete and incomplete With and of itself"
Just like a folding daisy You slowly open up And take it all in, the light, the madness And slowly you regain your sight You lift your arms and feel the wind Brush against your broken wings
Gradually you learn to unclench your fists For therein lies your secret code The coordinates to your destination The part of the world better known as home Ironically, this is not the end But the beginning to this beautiful game called life
Be it a map to a secret treasure A key to a door to unsolved mysteries Or a keyword that will capture Someone's heart until time Raptures love without all the miseries Or simply a fortune cookie with a prank written inside
That code is yours Etched upon your tiny hands It is your responsibility to decrypt that message And interpret it to fit your purpose And your purpose is nothing more Than what you make it.
