Unveiled,

The truth has thorns,

And the darkness has arms;

Happiness lies, and anger explodes.

 

We move along this common ground,

You and I.

A soup of emotions, ready to blow.

The nature of progression pushes us forward through life,

We move silently through strife,

And why, who knows.

 

Plant our feet carefully between mines

We know are there yet we cannot see,

And be, we try, with ourselves

However bitter that may seem.

 

We come across a stream that flows free,

How we wish we could be.

Blue, crisp, and clear,

With a purpose dear

To this Earth,

And we envy the stream.

 

But free we are in the mind and heart,

As the stream can never be.

Rejoice, I say, for we are unique.

 

Unveiled,

The darkness has arms,

and we have voice.
