A DIFFERENT VIEW


now that I've lost or won what I don'tknow
is left behind not yet to come
strange how things change
and from a different view
yet everyone seems so unreal

as the masks are torn
once familiar now savage faces
a grimace to reality is hiding
the polarity of what once had been paradise

the living leave their traces
but cannot realize integrity
through senses divided
artificially delighted
offering veiled perceptions

and still the questions lie
open to my crystal breaking eye
cannot see further from behind
that heavy veil slowly darkening my sun
what will I become ?

fading out to distant spaces
in-between the dark and the night
where belief finds another place to live
without fear and hate
I stand beneath my memories
no longer full of treason
so mustn't I except my fate another day

setting in another world
where knowledge walks with affliction
in reconciliation with myself
I stand upon a different shore
with stranger ships
to be sailed on unknown oceans
who'll lead me on ?

and as the masks are torn
reality shows
another power of perception
takes possession of my second self
drifting to a distant horizon

and as the mask once worn
disintegrates my personality
remembrance opens up the doors
to the future and the past
only for a moment...

cause still the questions lie
open to my breaking blazing eye
cannot see any further from behind
that heavy veil
slowly coming down
darkening my sun
what will I become
