    Mysteries

    Life is an ever changing mystery
    each day receding into history
    many stories pass through time untold
    every hour as our pasts unfold
    I wonder if I will ever see
    the mystery that is my destiny.

    One day I am my lady's prince,
    one day, never a word from since
    I've decided that I'll be content
    living only by my own consent
    if you rely on leaving subtle hints
    don't expect me to be convinced.

    Often when I've got to solve a crime
    I can't see what the deed was half the time
    Maybe someone did somebody wrong
    maybe known each other far too long
    people switch from subjects to sublime
    often without reason nor rhyme.

    Written in 1997.
