I try to (for Henry’s sake)

Although I seem to rot away

I try to stay so bright and gay

To help your miseries stay away

I hope that someday pain will allay

Hollow feelings and death

I am feeling hollow
Surrounded by death
Though no one wants to hear my thoughts
They say I am selfish if I declare my pain
Feeling for strangers, that’s insane, they say
But I look on
Numb
Torn
Forlorn
Reborn
Like from the ashes of the cadavers around me
I form a new life within my self
For them
For me
That’s how death can set people free
Sometimes
Like now, that doesn’t work
Perhaps soon it will
But now I am still
Cold and worn
I need the warm
I need life
No more death
Just let me be
Free

waste no time for misery

The citadels of time come and go like the waves of the sea

Ever enfolding, ever releasing, goodness and badness at ease

Locked in a time warp of uncertainty, we control things, not.

Fate encircles and declines whether we like it or not.

Time is of the essence, which one we won’t know

But time is forever lasting, it will never go

Dream of the good things and of the bad

Hope that you’ll get your wish and hope to never be sad

Graceful is its entrance within your waking life, bringing you happiness or strife

Waste not the time you have, keep it for all it’s worth

Moping around in misery will only make things worse.
