Waystation - Refuge and School - Journeys Through Outer Worlds

Waystation - Refuge and School - Journeys Through Outer Worlds

The city we are staying in is going through great turmoil
Giants of light and darkness in conflict with themselves and others
I offer to use the Waystation as a school for their children
A kind of neutral ground where cooperation and learning can be achieved
Between darkness and light — We divide the layout even more, hiding the living areas
The secret places of power, doorways and windows to Earth and Heaven, Hell

At first Sophia is upset about our new role as teachers for faery creatures and people
But there is a shortcut that she can use from the entrance to her rooms and treasures
Sophia helps me run the Waystation as best we can together — I give her a key
She brings a few things and people she loves from Earth and we need more space
I divide the house of secrets into living areas and offices, classrooms and hidden places
A righteous demon wants to help our efforts -- I give him a little freedom in the house
But his help turns out to be more trouble than good, and Sophia wants him gone

People in the city of giants do not trust us at first, but I work to create a safe environment
For their children, away from the conflict in the streets and wilderness at the edge of the city
I teach all categories of human history and knowledge I am aware of — And we are a refuge
From the outside world — Local politicians come and sign off on the project, offering support
Resources to feed young minds and bodies — We even create an aquarium with rare fish
From Earth’s rivers, lakes, and oceans — We are a kind of emissary for human culture
Nature — Good will ambassadors of a sort, helping where we can to improve Earth’s image
And Humanity — If only to provide a safe place for people of the magical city of giants
Sometimes parents — Those who cannot go to the schools of the Wizards and Witches of Light
We are far away from the Wizard Island City, at least by conventional means of travel
Only a short jump through space-time for the Waystation, or through a dimensional doorway

Jealousy arises, despite my best efforts to be free
Green light surrounds me, love yet also darkness
Sophia tries to counsel me through the pain and sorrow
But she does not want to be a replacement, nor tied down
We travel together, that is all, nothing more — Yet friends
I hope — I trust her with my life and large control
Interest in the Waystation — She listens to Sophia
Even though I still love her, and she does not feel the same
Being with Sophia and doing good work in the Waystation together
Makes me happy and almost content, traveling the many worlds
We start a business together, providing refuge and education
For the children of giants and humans — Safe from the conflicts outside
Riots and battles — We are neutral ground, and a fast means of escape
To the Wizard City of Light, or anywhere else for that matter, for those
Who would otherwise be forced to face the magical war
Between the forces of light and darkness, hell and heaven, in the City of Giants
