So you have questions? This I see and understand.
We all have questions, every race and every land.
You ask your questions and hope to understand.
But first you must listen.

Look around, wherever you may be,
And see the world around you,
The people around you,
See all that you can see.
Do this first, then listen to me.

What have you seen, what do you know?
Whether they be the workings of the atom,
Or the makings of the bowl,
All that you know relates, and connects.
Light to light, dark to dark,
Truth and sight, the difference stark.

Look for more and you will see,
That everything is poetry.
The universe around us speaks
The answers every mind seeks.
And ‘round us reflects the light,
That brings to us our little sight,
That shows us how little we really see.

Line to line, stretches on this charger,
Always, always growing larger.
As the world around us grows,
And with its growing shows,
That through the sight of intuition,
Lies reality’s volition.
Seek within and understand,
The mysteries of each grain of sand.
Each one reflects the others.

So in this ballad seek to find,
The mysteries of Earth and Mind.
The paths of life and songs of sight,
The paths of death and endless night.
Seek within to find,
Seek without to know,
Act within to grow without,
Act without to grow within,
And learn the Path of Battles!
