To dive in the oceans of wisdom
With all kinds of lunatics beside
Don't see the difference between
Right & Wrong...
....and nothing is know
To fly into the spheres of knowledge
Including also all mistakes and confusions
Don't recognize what's real or what's dream...
....and nothing IS KNOWN
To glide into the spaces of GODS & DIVINE
And also the DARKNESS is near
But what's now black and what's now white?
....AND NOTHING IS KNOWN
And after all
To see with breaking eyes
And in this final moment, suddenly,
EVERYTHING iIS KNOWN...
