"This" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"This"

To see it

A new perspective

Escaping the fall of the immortal soul

Subjects; new skins, draped over these old bones

And there is no escape

For that in which we choose, is based upon which we chose

Long ago, in the story; a journey of 1,000 years

The ups, downs and in betweens

The experience dancing before us

Light and dark

The binary form; giving in to one or the other

Over and over and over again

A secret code, arriving at a conclusion

A period

The journey of 1,000 years

A front seat for the fall of the immortal soul

And we think we have a choice

And we do, because we did

We could of had it any other way

And yet, we chose this
