At times I wonder
Where I'm headed in this world.
Where is my place?
In an office, the monotony of keyboards?
In a bus, a vagrant of burnt-out success?
Or among the stars above me,
in the splendid stream of stardust
so far away.
How easy it is to get lost in them.
Lost in dreams,
Lost in 'if' and
What may ever or never be.
Yet we're stuck in the Past.
What could have been.
The perpetuation of the Past
prevents the progress of the Present.
Like chains, restraining and taming,
Pulling us back and back,
Smothering the stars in inky darkness.
So this is to those bound by chains.
To those stuck in the purgatorio of the Past.
To those withering in faith and will.
You dreamers without dreams,
You hopeless romantics,
You despairing optimists,
Look to the stars and find your place.
Look up and not down.
Look forward and not back.
Before the night sky goes black.
