The Golden Road 30×36


every road there ever was
stems from a place called Gold
and from this beginning place
stems every story ever told

which made me think I’d like to go
to see where this all started
to ask why the road seems so tough
leaving us feeling broken hearted

so that’s just what I did
I closed my eyes and took a trip
I allowed my body to become
a truth searching battleship

I travelled through the many worlds
which each had its own dimensions
I powered through the colored layers
the ancient texts have mentioned

I laughed, I cried, I felt it all
I played both open and protected
I wrote down everything I saw
until I saw the unexpected

the ride was suddenly no more
I had reached the beginning place
and there within the golden light
I stood staring at my own face
