Under Cold Dead Rock / Bajo la Fría Roca Muerta



Alright now
Everyone in a pretty line
Come get on the bus
To take a tour of my mind
Please no food or drink
Keep your hands inside at all times

Please wear your sunglasses
You will need them for the start
For the tour to the brain
Begins deep within my heart

This is all the farther
Most are allowed to go
This rich and well developed neighborhoods
Wide, clean streets and rich, bright woods
Candy shops, waterfalls, sweet thickets
It is the me your mostly know
But since you paid for tickets
Let us get on then with the show

With many curves and hills behind us
Welcome to the entrance
I see you looking at your tickets
You are indeed on a mind tour
And what is before you in a mine
A gaping wound in fertile soil
Where workers by the billions
Spend days is endless toil
Digging
Painfully
Slow
Uncovering a once great civilization
Now buried
Devastated by disasters
Both natural and man made

As we enter
You may note
The walls pulse with hidden, untapped power
And the closer to the center
That we grow
That warm glow
Has brought forth wonderful flowers

Over here
A place well cleared
A spiral reaching for far off skies
Leading down to a sturdy, ancient hall
And as we come inside
I smile at your surprise
To see pictures on the wall
Portraits of you all
Decoration that doubles as foundation

Climb the stairs with me
To the top of the tower
In every direction
What do you see?
Tops of buildings
Tons of rubble
A thousand armies worth of work
Encountering obstacles and trouble
Completion an impossible goal
Eternal, brutal work to free a soul
Entombed in a grave of shame and neglect
An effort so clumsy and imperfect
A permanent, awkward journey
To make me whole?

Or do you see
Possibility
A place of limitless potential
Do you see
What it can be
Lit brightly from the heart
This mind, this future work of art
Perhaps you will even be a part
Invest your time
Make this effort
Not only mine
Take my hand
Let us roam this barren land
Let life and love follow us on our walk
Healing, discovering
Unsealing, recovering
What once lay lifeless and invisible
Under cold dead rock



Bien ahora
Todos en una línea muy
Entra en el autobús
Tomar un tour de mi mente
Por favor, sin comida ni bebida
Mantenga las manos en todo momento

Por favor, use las gafas de sol
Los necesitará para el comienzo
El Tour del cerebro
Comienza profundo dentro de mi corazón

Esto es todo cuanto más lejos
La mayoría se les permite ir
Este barrios ricos y bien desarrollado
Amplia, limpiar calles y ricos bosques brillantes
Confiterias, cascadas, matorrales de dulce
El yo es tu sabes sobre todo
Pero desde que usted pagó por entradas
Dejemos de entonces con el show

Con muchas curvas y colinas detrás de nosotros
Bienvenido a la entrada
Veo que mirando tus entradas
Usted está de hecho en una gira de mente
Y lo que antes de que una mina
Una herida abierta en el suelo fértil
Donde los trabajadores por los miles de millones
Pasar días es interminable esfuerzo
Excavación
Dolorosamente
Lento
Destapando una vez gran civilización
Ahora enterrada
Devastadas por desastres
Ambos naturales y artificiales

Como entramos
Puedan notar
Las paredes del pulso con el poder oculto, sin explotar
Y cuanto más cerca al centro
Que crecemos
Ese resplandor caliente
Ha sacado a luz flores

Aquí
Un lugar bien despejado
Una espiral buscando cielos lejos
Líder hasta una sala robusta, antigua
Y como podemos entrar
Sonrío a tu sorpresa
Para ver fotos en la pared
Retratos de todos
Decoración que se dobla como Fundación

Subir las escaleras conmigo
A la cima de la torre
En todas las direcciones
¿Qué ves?
Tapas de los edificios
Toneladas de escombros
Valor de 1 mil ejércitos del trabajo
Encontrando obstáculos y problemas
Completar una meta imposible
Eterno, brutal trabajo para liberar a un alma
Sepultado en una tumba de vergüenza y abandono
Un esfuerzo tan torpe e imperfecto
Un viaje permanente, torpe
¿Para hacerme todo?

O ves
Posibilidad
Un lugar de potencial ilimitado
¿Ves
¿Qué puede ser
Brillantemente iluminado desde el corazón
Esta mente, esta obra de arte futura
Tal vez ni siquiera serás una parte
Invertir su tiempo
Hacer este esfuerzo
No sólo mía
Toma mi mano
Nos dejan vagar por esta tierra estéril
Deja que la vida y el amor siga con nosotros en nuestro caminar
Curación, descubriendo
Remover, recuperando
Lo que alguna vez pone invisible y sin vida
Bajo la fría roca muerta

Mi dulce Rick,
Estoy literalmente enamorada de tu poema.
Increible tour de la mente. Nunca habia pensado en esto y me encanta la idea de ponerme gafas de sol (entendi perfettamente la metafora).
Te deseo una maravillosa semana
Un beso
