A Thousand Years...

A thousand years, a thousand more
A thousand times a million doors to eternity
I may have lived a thousand lives, a thousand times
An endless turning stairway climbs
To a tower of souls
If it takes another thousand years, a thousand wars,
The towers rise to numberless floors in space
I could shed another million tears, a million breaths,
A million names but only one truth to face

A million roads, a million fears
A million suns, ten million years of uncertainty
I could speak a million lies, a million songs,
A million rights, a million wrongs in this balance of time
But if there was a single truth, a single light
A single thought, a singular touch of grace
Then following this single point, this single flame,
The single haunted memory of your face.

I still love you
I still want you
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head

I may be numberless, i may be innocent
I may know many things, i may be ignorant
Or i could ride with kings and conquer many lands
Or win this world at cards and let it slip my hands
I could be cannon food, destroyed a thousand times
Reborn as fortune's child to judge another's crimes
Or wear this pilgrim's cloak, or be a common thief
I've kept this single faith, i have but one belief

I still love you
I still want you
A thousand times the mysteries unfold themselves
Like galaxies in my head
On and on the mysteries unwind themselves
Eternities still unsaid
to you, my queen....

A Thousand Years
- Sting

Why is it, that sometimes, lyrics from songs fill in the pieces far better than anything you could ever write... even if you had a thousand years to think about it?

For those of you who know me, not just the words written in this electronic diary, but really know me, my philosophy, my beliefs, my outlook on the world, my thoughts on time and space... you may get 'it'.

For those of you who don't know what rumbles around inside of me... What leads me to this belief is a long and involved story, I'd be glad to share with you some time if you are interested. You will need to listen with an open mind... because for most, it bends the edges of what seems normal. But, in the end, who decides what is 'normal'?

I am writing today because recently I have been considering how I have been living this life, who I need to thank, who I need to honour, who I need to hold in confidence, who I need to tell I am sorry, and the many things that I have left undone or unsaid. Typically, I don't run through life with reckless abandonment. I am calculating, consider every possible outcome and effect of my actions, decide the best course of action... then execute the plan with exacting precision. In virtually every case, I can tell you the result, before I begin.

Over the past few years... I have forgotten that philosophy. Acting without a plan, I have turned around to find myself buried waist deep in a quagmire of unintended consequence. Those days must end. The time for a new beginning is at hand. It begins today, here and now.
