"Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery. " -Malcolm X


His eyes, they shine
with haunted light.
He draws the line
between sane and right.

He gropes through
the yawning dark,
sinister, hazy--
a hunting shark.

He met me at
the world's divide.
He sang to me
until I cried.

He is near, and near is nigh.
He is here to clarify.

I literally wrote this off the top of my head. I'm not even sure who "he" is. Hope you like it! PLEASE RATE!

You know, that's a really good way to look at it-- I've never considered that. I like your way of thinking a lot :) I suppose it would be my conscience, since that does make a lot of sense. Thanks for the clarification! :)

I think "he" is your conscience. "He is here to clarify," "He draws the line between sane and right," just as a conscience does.
