Many have travelled the great distance of time
And witnessed things unknown but benign
Angels and fairies, lights that are dead
Things that this world, seem to dread
 
A world on it’s own exits independent
A world made of beliefs in magic pendants
A world that is conceived purely by thought
A world of magic, wisdom wrought
A world of light yet wholly dark
A world that might, just one day, be ours
 
You see a bird fly right by
You can see its presence in your eye
You feel its life within your mind
You control that bird and make it die
 
What sort of power have you got?
Where a world can be changed just like a sock
What sort of a person are you to bear
Such power and strength without a care
Do you not fear for those of old?
That one day this might not be home
What if you changed the world tonight?
Would you still be here or just a fright
What if the world just ceased to be?
Would that be part of your destiny?
What if you made this world a better place?
And not filled with so much hate
Is that too much to ask?
For someone with all of that
The power to do what ever you like
A person with eternal might.
