"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."
-Wuthering Hights

We Live a lie,

while we live to die,

waiting, never doing.

Afraid to make a change,

worried we’re seen as strange,

waiting, never doing.

Walking blind,

saying, “never mind,”




Sitting stagnate, 

just a fragment, 

of what we could truly be.

It’s our own demise,

when our passion dies. 

It leaves us sitting, 




The author's comments:

You know the aged old saying, "If you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything?" Well, the same is true of living. You have to live for something or someone and you must know passion. Otherwise you will feel purposeless, and you'll be living, waiting to die.

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
