How Well Do We Know?
How deep do we search within?
Do we anchor in the bay,
do we go out to sea?
The bay lulls us to sleep,
the sea stormy liberates our fears.
How well do we know ourselves?
We want to change the world,
but turn away from hard truths.
There are scars in our souls,
invisible bandages cover them so safely
but the scars heal over time.
How well do I know myself?
My cathedral is in the woods,
my church is in the ocean.
I believe in so many things.
I believe in peace and love.
I believe in saving lost souls.
I believe in life's second chances.
I am still climbing a mountain,
my eyes still bright and knowing,
my arms open, my heart open.
How accepting are we to others?
How forgiving are we to them?
Live with reason and a purpose.
Live with tolerance and live free.
Live with a conscious and truth,
then you will really know yourself.
