    To reach beyond the flight of thought,
    Just pause and close your eyes,
    And let the dark in the light show
    What you learned to love, despise.

    The turn of color within black,
    The flutter in the still..
    The pause in time when time moves on,
    The poison in the pill.

    The feel of the unseen, unheard,
    The insanity in the calm.
    The blanket of nothingness over us,
    The safety in the harm.

    So close your eyes and see within,
    See nothing and see beyond,
    The quiet recesses in the noise,
    The chords jarring the song.

    Disharmony is rife within our world,
    And its important to appreciate
    The lesson learned at each stumble
    A new perspective creates.

    So leaching hope from despair is
    How we must retaliate..
    And with trouble, courage will come,
    Fall down 7 times, stand up 8.

    Keep the faith.
