There Is a Journey I Have Discovered

There is a journey that I have discovered
There is a journey that I know is true
There is a destination that all must journey too
There is a path that can be mankind’s first and last

From the vault of a dark waterless seabed
To the great rainbow in the universe
From the first embryo of life
To the greatest thought in time and space

When your feet find this pathway
they begin to glide along on oiled feet
They slip on the slime left behind
by the millions of people upon the route
If people die on this golden glittering road
they die from broken hearts and excess
If people live forever on this road
they live because they learn how to drink the water

It begins in the ruins of war wrecked cities
It ends in the hearts newfound wisdom
It begins in the corridors of sin bashed slums
It ends in the fulfilment of insights

It must be taken – to live and never die
It must be taken – to know life
It must be taken – to find happiness
It must be taken – to see peace

It’s the discovery of the images of dreams
That appears after a time of darkness and hunger
They appear like black and white crystals in a broken mirror
They run down your nose and ears as you sleep
They frighten and distort you in your isolation
You’re like a dead barbecued carcass in your sleep

They begin to collect together in a narrative
They begin to piece together a message
They begin to attract a strange sweet solution
They begin to coalesce into a partnership

This is a journey that I have discovered
This is a journey that I know is true
There is a destination that all must journey to
There is a path that can be both mankind’s first and last
