"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]


A seed to a sapling

A death turned to life

A burnt carcass of a fallen tree

Felled by the cruel axe

A final leaf falling from the flames

A skeleton leaf

Carrying a world of life

A whisper killing coal-black silence

A shout saying nothing

A life that steals death

And death that spares life

A trust broken

And a lie believed

And a sapling turns to seed

"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
