     Touch my hand
Let us sail to the light of dawn
Traveling by a chariot of fire
And leave knowing behind
Rapturous rays cast upon us
lifting yourself from weight’s grasp
to fly toward the bleeding horizon
and beyond
Take hold, to ascend to the place
wherever the winds shall take us
Escaping to newfound destiny
of lands yet explored
Valleys of cherries sweet yet to blossom
isles of luscious jungles yet ventured
to the mountainous regions of foreboding
and the metropolis of life itself
To where the demons howl
and the sirens will sing
their melodious tune of death
while the soul bearers’ bells ring
Let the burden of reality release you
to the possibility of the unlikely
enriching your dreams to soar
above the stonewalls of life
Vitality springs forth from your eyes
Awaken! To see fantasy
as it was meant to be
and only then shall you be free
