\"Wake up with a positive attitude, go to bed with a positive attitude.\"

Don't wander off too far
Where hungry eyes are creeping
Don't lose yourself in venture
Where famished beasts are sleeping
They'll devour your flesh and suck your mind in-
At the precipice of Event Horizon

You always roam in secret places
Unaware of shadowed faces
Animals lurking in the dark
Watching you as their next mark
Thirsty with an unquenched lust
And scatter into blackest dust
They'll swallow you as you cry on in-
Resistance to Event Horizon

And as you lay to go to bed
They're stalking you inside your head
Waiting for that one clean time
To commit the Devil's crime

They'll tell you it will never happen-
Only in Event Horizon

The author's comments:
I got the idea after helping my sister study for an astronomy test. One of the terms was the event horizon-boundary in spacetime beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer. In layman's terms it is defined as "the point of no return"- and I really liked it!

The poem is about all the evil in the world and how no matter how much you try to avoid it, it will always be there.
