Have you ever seen a futuristic show
Where the land, complete with data, is shown
So you know more about the world
Than your eyes on their own?
Have you ever been in a grade school
Full of little kids playing on the grounds
And you try to count them all, to the last
While random numbers are shouted through a megaphone?
Have you ever connected some dots you've found
When you sit outside, or even with your phone
Your attention rapt at the image forming,
Something you never expected, and your mind is blown?
Have you been to a castle in the old world
The stones crumbling away in thousands of pounds
While you admire the works of man within nature
Getting lost in the grandure, far from any town?
Have you ever felt a jolt of elation
But you let out a silent moan
Because there's no way you have
To let the emotion, from your being, glow?
Have you ever felt a clarity of being
So clear and pronounced the tone
And you merely want to sit, to feel, to be
While you sit there, not lonesome, but alone?
I can't begin to tell you how I really think,
The ways my mind works on its own,
So I offer you this abstraction, something close
So that my mind just might be known.
