There is a blueness behind the glass
That seems to beckon
For an endless upward expansion
Looking through into the alternate
Into the Eden and the alternative
Into the bottomless abyss.
There is another world out there
Actually many, many worlds
And they each are just as relevant
Each are sacred and important
Each are places to be explored
With so much wisdom to be gained.
Behind this blue glass
Is beauty and love and ecstasy
Heartache and overwhelming emotion
It’s okay to let the window
Be thoroughly washed
By the tears of both joy and sorrow.
This is my journey
