Evil

We are all created equal
In the cold eyes of hate
Moral or immoral
Evil don't discriminate

Karma won't save thee
Believe what you like
War consumes the bloodthirsty
And the peace-lovers alike

It is not a wonderful world
It isn't even close
Fine weather shall turn cold
And friends will become foes

Don't expect the world to be
Kind because you are
Kind nevertheless, be
Because at the very least you were

Joy ride

I have known heaven
My heaven is in the heavens.

As I float like a cloud
Alone in the big blue sky.

Like a dandelion seed, I let go,
Carried away by the breeze.

Like a balloon, like a kite
A child's toy, spinning up high.

Like the meditative bird I envied
For a day, I stole its life.

And the world below so small
That for a while it doesn't matter.

I have known heaven
But it is time now to come back.

Stories - Escapist

For a moment there
She had almost believed
That she could live out the story
Instead of merely reading it

She smiled, shook her head,
Told herself to stop being silly
And picked up her book, her loyal friend
Losing herself in its stories once again

But if you saw the book later
You'd have found its pages stained
With wistful drops that silently betray
The hopelessly hopeful who still believe in Someday
