How can you draw when your thoughts are adrift?
Maybe it is at that time when ideas are ready to lead the pencil across its conduit
Thoughts are so free; they get to fly with no red light
Or are they free?
Aren't we who put boundaries to what thoughts can be?
Or is it society's rules that play the role of a sustainer?
Questions that strike the mind, but
The answer is only found within each and everyone of you
It is based on what you believe and what you conceive
The basics depend on what you have been taught
They depend on what "Path" you have been 'put on'
You see, a baby is born with a precious treasure
A treasure all babies are born with
But then, that treasure might be lost or it might be enriched with pearls and rubies
I shan't provoke the name of that treasure, for it is up to you to know...
What this treasure really is
I am sure "you heard" of it, but
Have you conceived and believed?
Have you searched and compared?
Be quick, for time is out of 'time'
Quickly before the fire dispatches you; who are blind
Quickly before screams echo you; who are deaf
