“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

Memories of a forgotten past
Come rushing in oh so fast
Far away in another life
My struggles full of endless strife

Emotions brighten but also fade
My life’s brought right back to the shade
Here in this timeless domain
Will I know joy ever again?

Darkness covers this endless space
Blanketing my heart without a trace.
Distant colors of sun and light
Flow away right out of sight.

Lost and alone as I have been
Fearing to let another in
My life is torn and full of fear
My eyes will never shed a tear

I’ve lived and lost and run so far
My heart now black as darkest tar
In the void I sit down and stare
Wondering why life is so unfair.

I wrote this awhile ago when I had my heart broken. I was down for quite some time, but I bounced back!

They just make the most of everything they have."
