A cryptic code,
For a useful tool

Is it an explosive?
Blasting apart the walls,
Laying old structures to ruin?

Or is it a solvent?
Dissolving away the tarnish,
To reveal the hidden splendor.

Is it too powerful?
Such only to be feared,
Controlled, and hidden.

Or can it bring change?
New paths to travel,
New labyrinths to explore.

Is it too much to ask?
To face the horrors,
Of our own minds?
