"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 was searching in a sea of faces

A sea of things

With eyes that flitted but did not focus

And looked but could not see

I was turning around and around

And down but never up

But could not find

I was asking for answers from those with no words

And I was fleeing those with truths

And I was listening to those with words but no truth

I was on the run fleeing myself

And I was seeking blind

And I was lost and could not ask directions

And I was lost and asked directions 

Only to get lies

Or false directions, anyway

It's all the same

And I was lost and got true directions

But I turned them down

And I was lost

And then I was found

This is religious.

It isn't about me, I grew up in the gospel

yes, actually.
btw your side of the cowrite we're doing right now is amazing! i was so hooked.
I had to drop cowrites with wolves because she comes on so spottily, we never get things done, and i have a trillion projects(and i just decided to take on yet another dnd campaign). I'm willing to work with you, but heads up i dont want to take on very much, esspecailly because my english teacher is about to start giving me a seniors workload and im not. but i'll try.
