Viewing the world by mere candlelight

Ancient words of wisdom --

Lost

Purging ever into the mist --

Seeking something nonexistent

Sailing just over the edge

Seeing the shadows of life

Dancing around and around --

Never able to reach the center

Blaming the laws of nature --

Crawling backwards

Eating the bones and discarding the flesh

Cantering about under false liberty

Falling into the sky --

Distant.

Praising them  --

Masked.

Worshipping -- In ignorance

Burying -- in cold blood

The only truth -- the hour glass --

Rooted -- Permanent.
