It’s All A Mystery I look around It’s all confusion different stories from all directions what can anyone believe turning in circles dizzy and lost in a fog I can never see through it to the truth that is just on the other side can anyone tell me what is what can anyone just tell me what the real truth is one story leads one direction another story the other way they all want you to believe that what they tell you is what is really real am I to believe the one on the right or should I believe the one on the left I never know what way to turn Is there anyone who can help me see through the darkness that hides what I am trying to see someone to hold just one little candle to light the way though darkness and show me the way the one path that I should follow on my way through this life
Opening My Eyes Why is it that I have been blind for most of my life never seeing what was before me all the important things I should have seen all of the beauty before me the people I should have seen the ones I could have helped the ones that I even could have loved the knowledge in the books I never saw the wisdom in the people I should have seen even the paths I should have followed why is it that I only see them now at almost the end of my life without the vigor of my youth without the strength to make what I see real blind so many years only now can I open my eyes and do what I can with the time I have left a final chance to walk the world Finally seeing the real me inside doing what I can do and being who I really am now at last
