I see some pennies


A few are shiny and pretty


But some are dull and dirty

 

Be the shiny one.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"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]

I feel like the dirty one a lot.
I think?
I used to, at least. dusty and forgotten.
I have less time to be lonly and to hate dreams now. probably a good thing.
