Removing The Mask

Flip an hourglass
twist an image
shatter a mirror
revealing creation

Conform to the same old
contorting to average
predictable, standard

Arise through the sky
overlooking your earth
undertaking the task
of removing the mask


Strum away at the strings

melodic Heaven


your hearing

Lost in sound's sea

swimming through keys



Play the harp

like a heart

like a beat



when and

where and

why and

how ?

ask not

speak not

think not

only hear

an idea

a concept

a notion

for motion

to listen

to heed

to react

to achieve

to renew

to believe

to escape

to conceive
