The mirror sang from side to side
Somewhere over the rainbow an old guitar
Picked up a young musician,
Awakened in his heart the desire
To be a Bridge.

And he is still wandering
looking for himself –
When the masquerade dances
not earthly drums move its feet
but the worlds underneath.

When your heart moves
Close your ears to the kora you hear
Look for the mirror within
For the mirror swings
from side to side.

– Che Chidi Chukwumerije

      1. It reminded me that If I want something bad enough, I need to look inside myself to get it. I depend to much on others. Thats what I took from that line.
