Courage Life Courage Death

Are my boundaries blurred by disbelieving eyes?
Did wet dry lines in the sand move by my hand?
What is right if the answer is another question?
I can only walk alone wondering where I stand

Yesterday everything seemed so sure to me
I had a dream but would I wake up in time
There was no window I could climb through
But I lived long enough for what I had in mind

My ignorance tells me I was born just last week
Is anything mine or is someone just hanging around?
Why do I know so little of you after knowing you so long?
We’ll never be brothers with roots in uncommon ground

Tell me what you believe, I’ll tell you what I love
Does love courage life, does belief courage death?
It should happen tomorrow then, doesn’t everything?
But my today is now, I hope I have one more breath

A touch of nostalgia in this poignant Mark, beautifully penned as always.
