we the willing, lead by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. we have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.


Lurking in the hallway
Waiting for that glimpse of you
I wonder if you notice me
If you really, truly notice me
Or just simply see me.
I am at one end and you
Are at the other
I am the girl from far away
That wishes to be up close
As the people who don’t mean a thing
Keep me from what means everything--
I don’t have the courage.
I pray to someone I doubt is real
Yet hear I am forcing myself to feel
These feelings that destroy me
As I see you across the hall
I doubt if you see me,
the girl from far away.
I doubt if you see me one bit
At all.
