Favorite Quote:
That at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That's the world's greatest lie." - Paulo Coelho


you want to learn to survive
survive the daily pain
pain from friends and family
family that isn't really here


here to them is in the clouds
clouds that hurt themselves
they inflict the pain to stay
stay up but not far away


away from reality
reality is where you live
living, breathing, trying
trying to stay against the rails


rails that lead you into the sky
skies that harbor a family's clouds
clouds that try to run from reality
reality is the living, breathing, surviving


surviving is reality
reality is living
living is breathing
breathing is what you're doing


doing it everyday
everyday you're surviving
surviving the pain of daily things
things such as living against the rails
