A million dreams

before my eyes

can keep me up at night.

Dread creeps up my spine


feels not like enough time.

Going through the motions

hoping for a change

in total misery.

Joking does the universe

kicking feet and laughing

looking at my despair.




possibilities of life.

Quiet is the universe

regarding what I should do;

silence greets me every time

to no one's surprise.

Unknown to lesser men

value lies in this.

When the world offers everything

x is no longer a variable.

you can make it what you want

zero limitations.
