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.
