Unicorn Reality

In the heat of the night
Run rampant our thoughts
So we cage them in the light
Held at bay by our pin-striped minds
Surrendering to shadows of doubt

We close our eyes
To the world we see
We’re so frightened by the glare
Escaping to and from ourselves
Hiding the enemy within

Feigning consciousness of thought
Confronting obscurity
With an open mind —
Open to imagination…
And a sealed door
Closed to those
Who have no dreams…

In the reality of light
Deception has such might
Unleashed upon innocent minds
Those ignorant of its power soon find
They are victims of their own doubt

We open our eyes
To the world we’ve made
And we’re frightened and unaware
That escaping to and from ourselves
Releases the enemy within…
