Two-Faced Mirror or the Quest
Maria Joao Weitzenbaur Sampaio Cabral
I'm a dreamer with no cause
A stranger a collaborator
A believer with no faith
A sailor with no north
The sentimental sweeps the tears in the dark...
The magician hides the chaos
The clown diverts the pain...
And the pretender emerges as a fighter a solid rock
Should I pray for inspiration
Console the spirit stop the soul's perambulation?
A redeemer an elixir a miracle an enchanting tale?
I'm a dreamer with a stolen dream
A musician without a tune
A poet without a muse...
And yet the spectator waits
Feed his hunger his lust for life!
Let him tell the story of his soul's glory
Appease his torment his quest to write...
