Once again I close my eyes.
Time slows and the world disappears.
I free myself and now I can really see.
Becoming an apparition of myself.
Soaring through the space.
Unanswered questions ever driving me.
Reaching far beyond known realities.
Escaping the boundaries of thought and time.
Journey further than fear would allow.
Seeking the Creator.
Nearing the enigmas of this universe.
An image far before me.
My hopes assured as the vision clears.
Beaming brighter than a supernova.
At last, my voyage ends in his presence.
I need to see the face of my Maker.
Meeting my saviour and end my insanity.
I look up to see his face.
Numbing shock, surprise is seen.
Into this righteous persona, I see Me.
