Favorite Quote:
Two paths diverged in a wood, I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference
-Robert Frost

A collection of organs,
no sort of functions,
the attic is empty,
the basement is throbbing,
replying to no person,
speaking of nothing,
the machine walks,
without a purpose,
piously he exhibits emotion,
without any sort of feeling,
tearing the walls,
building back up,
a cycle of no end,
running and running,
finding no haven,
his excuses run thin,
mind young caving,
some day he will stop,
but until then undeniable,
he runs the pious machine

The author's comments:
This poem is about a man who runs away from his problems and feeling until he feels no more and becomes a sort of machine.
