the real questions

if there were a way to get to the place
that's clear and vibrant on the story's page
would we ask if anyone could gauge
whether we'd gain prestige or just lose face
when we would want to get out of the race
to find a place beyond the power of age
where there's no anger jealousy or rage
the marks of onward journey we'd erase
the magic kingdoms that we dreamt in youth
seem far more distant given every choice
we've made to journey to the life we've got
but somewhere in their image is our truth
the thing that we wish to give fullest voice
before our souls and fingers go to rot
