I stand once more before the door

That opens onto unknown lands

I'm searching for the threshold lore

That's buried deep beneath the sands


Shifting upon some distant shore

That long ago an ocean kissed

Yet now it is an endless store

Of silence which will not be missed


When chaos claims the codex core

And shades corrupt the lion's roar

When pride blinds us to crucial flaws

Cause every clause must have its claws


This dejavu is nothing new

Echoes abound in memory

Association is the glue

That catches flies in reverie


The honey up above, it glows

Like gold, it drips upon my nose

The sweetest rose, perfume it throws

Upon all those whose sins it knows


Perceive the pieces of the past

The lesson asking to be learnt

The spell that's calling to be cast

The rebirth which stands to be earnt


To break free of the locked esprit

Of previous identity

To clear conceptual debris

Define dynamic destiny


To take responsibility

And grow in proactivity

To cultivate more honesty

And calibrate for modesty


The hall of mirrors calls to me

For in reflection lies the key

To sowing curiosity

About what one cares not to see


One learns to question death's decree

By recalling his hold on thee

And so, one seeks simply to be

And thus, one tends the lightning tree


Yea, fright'ning though true trying is

In this lies true nobility

The magus knows this is his biz:

To unlock possibility


The Quill, The Blade, The Pillar calls

They sing out and ignite my soul

So that it thirsts for fabled falls

Wherein my I could be made whole


And this alone, I know's the goal

The target at which essence aims

To forge a diamond out of coal

To build a castle out of claims


To use the word to light the way

To write the future with today

To master both body and mind

Surrender and what you may find


Is that there is no break to bind

Because you signed your name while blind

And so, if you sincerely pray

The sun just may come out to play
