Dragon Doors

It’s been some time since I’ve posted in this diary–and so much has happened . But today I remembered a song that Uncle Reggie always used to sing, and it seemed strangely important.

“Oh brother, here are we now standing before a dragon door.
Do we dare to open it and unleash what ever hell might lie beyond?
If behind this door lays the future than we must press on.
For is this hall of hell not the way humanity has pushed down for all its time? And here we are now standing at ends with the ability to make a future.”

“Oh brother, surely not all of society has come down this way.
Do we dare to open it and unleash what ever hell might lie beyond?
If beyond this door lays the future than let progress die and us live.
For is this world so evil that it will let us decide if the whole world ends? And here we are standing at the great decision with the choice to live.”

“Than let us decide for the better of the world and strive for better lives. We will never know hardship again.”

“But why must we fatten ourselves for the butcher to come in the eventual end? I say we lay down our pathetic attempts to create paradise
And build better people instead of machines.”

“But we are flawed and always will be so why work on a canvass filled with holes? I say we create a new world where life is obsolete
And build a future without flaw.”
