Behind The Veil - Poem by Alice Anne Gordon

Who is behind the veil,
behind the veil?
Who sees what others
only think they feel?
Who gives hope
and hands out fate?
Who has the keys
to freedom's gate?
Who walks through
the passages of mind?
Locking, unlocking doors behind.
Who has the power
to say they don't exsist?
Who writes out a master's list?
Who keeps the secrets
that have never been told?
Who passes on
what must never unfold?
Who is behind the veil,
behind the veil?
questions old, answers frail.

    Questions that have been asked ever since we were cast out of Eden and the gates closed and sealed. Nicely put down in this poem. (Report) Reply
