he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.

I am the Wizard. This world is mine.
I speak. It's done. My realm is fine.
My wand, my tongue. My sword, my voice.

I say happy, or I say mad.
I say angry, or I say glad.

My word holds the magic - the power to heal.
Intent is my weapon - a sword from above.

This world's my joy. This mouth's my toy.
Reborn -I'm a brand new girl or boy.
I choose. I speak. My will is done.
Come join. Come play. This can be fun.

the real way to know, the real way to be.

And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
