"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]


What is a warrior

Without something to protect?

What is an artist

In a world painted grey?

What is a singer

In a world too bleak for song?

What is a pen

Without stories to tell?

What is a villain

With nothing to gain?

What is a story

Without characters, places, or thoughts?

What is a dream

Without a dreamer to care?

What is pain

Without blood and mind to attack?

What is joy

In a world gone black?

What am I

Without words to write?

What is humanity

Without use for minds?

What is  life

Without lives to live

Pain to feel

Joy to feel

Colors to see

Stories to write

The spectrum, dark and light, to hold

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

I gotta say, I feel the same way.
