Eternity

I've been paying attention,
To eternity.
With my eyes looking in the sky,
To eternity.
I've been paying attention,
To eternity.
With my eyes open wide,
To eternity.

Within distance and observed,
Is eternity.
And all its tremendous massiveness,
Is eternity.
The heavens of heavens and of other heavens,
Is eternity.
No human mind can absorb it to imagine...
We don't exist as dust to see.

No longer can be viewed,
And just a few miles up...
Conflict and confusion,
From here disappears.

No longer can be viewed,
Are opposing accepted values.
And just a few miles up,
Light years define time.

I've been paying attention,
To eternity.
With my eyes looking in the sky,
To eternity.
I've been paying attention,
To eternity.
With my eyes open wide,
To eternity.

Heavens of heavens and of other heavens,
Is eternity.
Heavens of heavens of heavens not seen,
Is eternity.
Heavens beyond light years existing,
Is eternity.
Yet we created our own nonsense,
Nowhere in the heavens seen.

I've been paying attention,
To eternity.
With my eyes open wide,
To eternity.
I've been paying attention,
To eternity.
With a mind now broadened to realize,
How deluded we are as human 'beings'.
