Mind's Eyes

Why is happening?

Says the common man in his everyday living

Always In meaningless, always thinking about the past

But the old man in his wisdom can see far beyond the ordinary consciousness

No longer walks in backwards to the front of his path

looking to the past

Now walks straight

Watching for his way

The Eye of Horus shows him all the past

Meanwhile the others keep walking, turning his back to this tomorrow

Like that, we see the world in colors and its little wonders in black and white

Contrasts night over day, evil over justice

So knowledge over ignorance

Like water for the thirsty, is dying by the desert dry heat

and the lonely man's fallen heart

Whose path gets lost in the so many Jupiter's moons

So far away from him and gorgeous,

like his deeper loves and beloved wishes


Come across my mind

I need to speak

Desperately in a rushed need to show what I can see

But like bees can only see their flowers and the remaining world is black and white for them

Deep as the sea abyss

And unknown like the wind whispering
Only revealed when time would be time

When life would be life
