I would tear every star from the sky,
if the truths I seek were behind them.
I would drain every sea,
if a single key was buried at the bottom.
I would steal a thousand breaths,
if it meant I could mutter an answer.
Feeling my way through the crowd of an empty space,
I can hear all of their whispers.
They want to pull me down their rabbit holes,
but I don't wanna' go.
I'd rather walk the forward path,
with those honest about their disorientation
than run down in circles,
with those who falsely claim to know the way.
Heroes are made the same way as villains,
and often cut from the very same cloth.
It is far better to be a blasphemer
than a liar or a fool.
