“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski

Pools of moonlight dance on my skin,
Shimmering waves of white.
Silver reflections break through the trees,
Dappled, a wonderful sight.
But the light comes haunted with shadows,
(A veil that is covering me).
I'm peering through holes in the net,
But still I struggle to see.
My arms are alive with movement--
A battle plays over my skin.
Though I've embraced the darkness within me,
I'm hoping the light will win.

"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”
― Weihui Zhou

I can relate to this easily. There's an internal battle everyday to do good, but also do to bad. And as pleasurable it is to do bad, I know we're always hoping to do good, even if it's not the coolest thing to do.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.
