We Are All Sand in the Desert

April 16, 2008

We are all sand in the desert.
Just another,
star in the sky.
Who really understands
the meaning of life.
We live to die.
Die to live.
Nothing matters to us.
Nothing should matter.
To live life is to be free.
But sometimes,
we do not experience freedom.
Maybe not even a little.
To know how it feels;
How it feels to
be free.
With every part of you
taking the journey through the mountains,
the forests, and the wild.
We are dead.
Because that freedom was never given to us,
or taken from reality.
We are only dead.
Nothing more,
nothing less.
