the truth.Eastern skies for Western eyesThe future and the past collideTears and fears are burning fuelsThat lead us to destructionVendettas and retalliationGive us deadly expectationsSlaughtering our differencesTo keep us all the same
in the distance.I hear screams, in the distanceImmediately, I walk in that directionWith each step I take, a crescendo of screams ensuesSoon, words form in the screams'Help me, please! Somebody!'Just over the horizon is the source of the screamsSo I continue to walkLouder and louder, the screams overwhelm meI fall to my knees'Please! Someone help me!'I stand up again, determined to reach my destinationSuddenly, I hear screams behind me...
sinking feeling.Fallling far too quicklyA sinking feeling, to say the leastEverything is slipping away, fadingHolding on to the memories keeping me afloatWaves crashing down on my, loosening my gripMy head goes under, but I pull myself up once moreThe water's rising in the sea of solitudeI hold on with all the strength I have left,But it's just not enough, and my fingers slipA downward force is pulling meAs I gaze at the surface, of what once was.
wonderland.As the evening sun shines toward my face,I shield my eyes with my hands to counteract the intense lightYet below the boundaries of my two hands,I can see a shimmering, reflected wonderland on the ground:Forgotten webs of spiders, slung mercilessly between grass bladesBeads of dew already formingIt is a beautiful sight that is rarely seen with appreciationI lower my hands, and am nearly blinded once more.
i write.I write, but then again, so does everyone.Some use clever rhymesOthers conjoin unnecessary adjectives to obscure nouns in a mysterious mannerI write, but then again, what does it mean anymore?Some use writing as a means of expressionOthers write because they think it makes them differentI write, but then again, what good is it for me?
you are light.Like a mighty wind blowing away the clouds,you came and brightened my lifeI can see my surroundingsThey used to terrify me with their power and sizeAnd now I realize that they were merely shadows against the dim light that I livedYou have given me breath, life, love, and most of all, light.
