To climb the eternal staircase Means that "enough is not enough".
To look into the sun. To reach the top is bound
My eyes were closed from strain To end where you began
The hiss of ego's tongue. Men choose to hug the ground;
I lost my ears in vain, Their hearts too close to land.
To fall from heaven's grasp. My ears hear love apart
But men do not desire To show just who I am.
Days come or go though lapse. My eyes look to my heart
Birds fly or fall from tire. To find just where I stand.
