Favorite Quote:
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. -- Winston Churchill

Can we say we're okay
I thought the time pristine
Crystal clear with thought unknown
It's known
Cloudy as the bright days ahead

The train goes fast
Never reaching destinations near
To slow to make it
To shy to explicate the meaning strong

Naturalness flows so easy
Awkwardness breathed like dry air
Where did the nights go
Such short time past
This day will never end, it runs forever long
Torture on the outside kills
Inside is heaven without regret

Haunting this relaxed morgue
Hypocritical posture overturns our soul
Creeps in such deafening whispers
Making our humble knees bend
Seeing the bright moon
Crowded by the shadow of the sun

Spring blossoms show high
Riveting fall leaves blow in directions gone
Catching with fire from our hearts
Doused by the rain from the skies of our minds

Courage grows fear
Doubts make us true
Fear makes you strong
Truth expends my secrets

Explode like the dynamite reserved in the epitome of your unbreakable heart
Reserve the fire that's holding me down in the explosion of my thinking

Reservations (Explode)
Explosions (stay Reserved)

Crazed in hearing
No need for caring
Importance expounds in this situation
As it is left undying in the arms of those found dead

So I write this song
For us to sing along
To be heard by all, everyone
That fills this empty room

The author's comments:
Sometimes problems can just be stupid. Uncertainty, can cloud, and make us do things we shouldn't. This poem reveals the contradiction found in uncertainty, that should never be found in the first place.
