Is There A Way?

Amazed in the maze standing tall through it all I find
Myself down with the sound of confusion all around, and

Through the clear water splash into the last stash
Of hate turned good and allowed a last flash.

Solid block of grunt shoving shoulder breaking through to
The side that’s wide sunny sunlit vast unbroken blue, then

I brought the thought you fought the ought
And rang a bang bang stang over and under and through the best they caught.

Rattle! Jangle! Metal clanks as pipes of dreams clatter and tangle
And wrangle and mangle banging clash of wracking streetwise twisted angle, but

Where’s the sting?! Bring! Bring the sting full into the ring
Where I fight to sing and seek the wing that soars away from all these things.

Whisper peace to the ear that hears and has no fear
And has no need no creed no lead and sees the deed, that

Was done in love’s time. What crime? No crime and no dropping dime.
Time to rest and time to find what’s never blind, and forever mine.
