There's a world above the world;
one I've caught in fleeting glimpses
that I've seen from time to time
over the years
from people I'd thought to be
perhaps a tad crazed.
Things they would say...
(Mom always taught me to keep a firm foothold in reality)
But whose reality is the true one?
Will the real Johnny please stand up?
Do you think what your eyes see
is all that there is?
Have you tried feeling with your heart,
and with your soul,
rather than your so-called rational mind?
With the skin over your flesh even?
Feel the vibration that is everywhere,
in all of us,
in all things.
I now understand my deep love of music.
