Think

What if?

What if there is more to this world than meets the eye? Beyond what may appear. What if we didn’t crawl out of the primordial ocean some gazillion years ago?

What if we’re more than chemicals and stimulus response? What if we have a history, vast and just about forgotten?

What if? What if this is all some sort of trial?

Indeed, what if?

The Words:

Did you ever stop to think
to wonder at the night
befallen here

in a thinking
that really would matter
to trace what made
this craziness appear

is it something you
inherited at birth

or something vaguely
chosen as you grew

or something
you have never once
had a reason
to think
a part
of you

Did you ever stop to ask
to wonder whether night
has come to stay

in an asking that
really would matter
to question your
uncertainties away

how can sleeping
be so sweet

forgetting
so absurd

and dying
something no one knows
how to answer
at all

but think

Maybe we are not forgotten
maybe we’re just left here
for a while

Maybe we are not forgotten
maybe we're just part of
some amazing trial

for some time
to come

Did you ever stop to dream
to live your life
beyond what may appear

in a dreaming
that really would matter
to truly trace
what’s happening right here

amazingly
I think that
it would work

amazingly
if you think
it would work

it's something
I have never once
had a reason
to doubt

but then

Maybe we are not forgotten
maybe we’re just left here
for a while

Maybe we are not forgotten
maybe we're just part of
some amazing trial

for some time
to come

Maybe we are not forgotten
maybe they just left us
for a while

Maybe we are not forgotten
maybe we're just part of
some amazing trial

for some time
to come
