i am a dreamer.
in life i create, in creating i live- me, Klaus!

I watch as time passes, it goes faster each day,
I feel life passing, it makes no delay,

I'm caught in the flow, that goes only one way,
I just let it take me, there are no words I can say,

I walk through life, my mind in dreams,
I see reality, torn at the seams,

I watch the crowds, they don't seem to see,
I stand and wonder, what a life like that would be,

I search in light, but there is nothing to find,
I search in darkness, but there I am blind,

I look out in the night, and the moon does appear,
I see from it's light, a world so clear,

I hear it call, to come out and play,
I take the first steps, into a world of grey,

I know the night, can hold much to fear,
I know I am safe, with the moon so near,

I walk the half-night, with eyes opened wide,
I find myself thinking, about what I must decide,

I tried the darkness, I tried the light,
I choose the grey between, for it feels just right,

I write for all to read, this tale of my mind,
I hope it does help some, see a path hard to find

i had a really rough time a while back and reflecting on this i came up with a story of i.
at school i'm an outcast, the one that everyone looks at funny, the one who "does not belong"
