Mark Arvizu (Ciudad De Los Angeles, California)
To peel back the sky is what I desire
To know all the truth is what I aspire
To throw my mind beyond the wind and whim of man
To see past the now
To step past the day if I could know how
Then what would I do with such veracity?
Juggle it with myth and mirth to my fancy?
So must I wait or watch for something to happen
To further my stand for what I believe in?
My life shall pass 'fore I know all of wisdom
Would I be wrong if I peeled back the heavens?
