Love Your Labyrinth "How will I ever get out of this Labyrinth?"
~Last Words of Simon Bolivar
Alaska Young provides us with an answer of almost childlike simplicity.
"Straight and Fast."
The shortest distance between two points in traditional Euclidean Geometry is a straight line. From a purely goal oriented and objective viewpoint she is very much correct. Who needs Ariadne's string or the insider knowledge of the architect when you can barge through like the Juggernaut, turning walls to rubble or performing the trifecta of rule breaking. Just slip on your fox hat and book it until you're out. Right?
"Straight and Fast?"
But... Is getting out of your maze really worth that? Is this Labyrinth really so bad that we must go through it in a reckless frenzy? When Alaska 'es
Like a Boss!Alas my friends, you see!
I have done it!
I have my wings!
And now I can fly through the sky!
Like a bird!
Or a gazelle!
Or even a boss!
Wonderous WorldI watch as the sun
Sets on this beautiful world,
And I stand there and think,
"There really is something we haven't destroyed."
And then I stare at the sky as the stars come out,
And I think,
"But I really do wish I had a blummin' roof!"
Little BirdHello little bird.
I may say.
Do you know the time of day?
For I have lost my clock.
Now, now, do not mock.
I left it on my head for just a second.
It would stay there I had reckoned,
But as you can tell it is not there.
Now I do remember seeing a little hare,
So maybe he stole it.
Why do you insist on how many candles are lit?
I am trying to find my timepiece.
And yet still you do not cease.
You, little bird, are very rude.
Now you have left me in such a terrible mood.
I wish to not speak with you now.
What do you mean how?
I am going to walk away.
No you cannot make me stay.
I must find that hare.
Perhaps he has a lair.
It must be somewhere underground.
So maybe if I make a loud sound,
He shall return to this level, I must make myself heard.
Goodbye little bird.
I'll leave you to hop down your tree.
Balancing ActBalancing on a rope,
Arms spread out
And eyes tightly shut.
I daren't look,
Everything around me is something to be feared.
I remember seeing the giant abyss,
That was before I stepped on here,
I opened my eyes a few metres back,
And I could see the creatures that swam in the dark.
All around me there is only darkness,
Only my little bubble gives me any light,
So the creatures are close,
And they scare me more than the fall.
I must keep moving,
Even though my legs are tired,
No time to rest,
I must move on.
I dare to open my eyes once more,
I can see a milestone in the distance,
A place to rest
And recover some strength.
I ignore the sounds of the creatures around,
As I push on toward that small patch of land,
That there I'll be safe,
With the ones I care for.
Until I must walk again.
On this thin, dangerous wire.
Dreams of realityA pair of eyes;
Open and stare through the lights,
Into the darkness of doom.
And yet they smile,
Yet they smile.
A drop of tear;
Seeps through the garden of death;
Falls to the mortal soil.
Dreams and desires will blend again,
To render the roses alive.
I am floating through a vision.
Like ripples, floating through the pond of life.
Can reality be so real?
Let me drown again,
Into the silence of familiar noise.
As I wander through the lanes of reason and passion.
The flame of hope burns bright,
Drenched in the colors of freedom.
So let my dreams unravel my soul,
As darkness fades away;
And let mortality draw me closer to destiny.
As these pair of eyes,
Open to stare through the lights again.
Is this reality?
Can reality be so real?
Time passes by, as the eyes keep staring;
Staring at the distant lights;
Staring beyond the distant skies.
What do they see?
What do they long?
What do they desire?
Then the skies will break down;
White lightning striking the dreamy clouds.
Moments will tur
Keep in Touch!
