By
   Have you ever been lost?

So lost you don't know where the sun is?

Or where time has gone?

Or if you're the only person left in the world?

Have you ever wondered

Why you are where you are?

Walking slowly down the crumbling path,

Shifting your pace gracefully along the way?

Wandering and whispering,

Into the careless ancients' ears,

You can speak your mind,

And tell them all your fears,

Because there's nobody to shut up,

And nobody is afraid.

Have you ever looked,

Behind the irises of eyes?

And seen the secluded depths?

Of the intense heat within the fire,

That burns the soul so much?

And when you reach the eternity,

That isn't of this earth,

You suddenly realize

That you have all the time in the galaxy,

And nothing to do during it.
