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

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]


I want to write a poem

No, I want to write a feeling

I want to write the wind

And I want to write the water

I want to write something that breathes

I want to write something with passion

And stillness

I want to write power and silence

And power in silence

I want to write of love and lies

And freedom and truth

And hair whipping in the wind

As a runaway wanderluster flees into the night

I want to write beauty and destruction

And heartache and tears

And strength in weakness

And death in life

I want to create

And to blaze for a moment

And then become ash

And I want to watch the ashes in the wind

And I want to be ashes in the wind

Floating free

Flying

I want to write a poem

"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
