"Your dreams only become intangible when you stop reaching" ~me ;)

Lock me up, and throw away the key
So the world won't see
This tragedy.
Shield their eyes
From the innocent's gaze,
and add your putrid fog into the haze
Of hatred and dismay.
I will not take it upon my hand
to bludgen the beast of inhumanity,
I would prefer to keep
Uncivil insanity.
Shun away from moral's luminous lights
For change is hard
and takes pride and will to fight.
Stand, i shall not,
For dreary crowds
of those paved in their ways
Will only knock me off my feet.
Pain, ignorance, is impenatrable
In our world of deceit.
So my bliss amongst chaos
is no match for such grief.

The author's comments:
This is about people knowing exactly what is right, but choosing to fall in place with the crowd instead of stand out as an individual. Sometimes we want desperatley to speak but are afraid of being silenced, so we close our mouths before someone can do so for us.

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
