Who is to say where our destiny lies?
To decide where this illusion ends
And real life comes into view
Fates are wrapped up tight
Inside Pandora’s ornate box
What strange and cruel reality is this?
Where such perfection is far out of reach
As close as a gentle loving whisper
Yet so far away the distance is unbearable
While time ticks away the miles in between
When will the day arrive that sees the miles disappear?
Forests and deserts vanishing into togetherness
As time succumbs to the power of beauty
And Pandora’s box can finally be unlocked
Letting free this torrent of raw human emotion
Where will we be inside our minds?
When we are allowed into our secret garden
Free at last to run wild and let passions grow
To fevered pitch while the skies open wide
Engulfing rays of light pouring from our souls
Why must it take so long?
To bring meant to be into being
To see what was so obviously hidden
Right in plain view for all but one
While ravages of time laughed mockingly
How are we to find our way to hearts freedom?
The promise of morning balances against the night
Sun and Moon in an obedient place in the sky
While Pandora’s box finally reveals it’s mysteries
Beautiful mayhem pours directly into our solitary heart
