Chevelle

"Will not be shaken,
And jump into this,
And be pursuasive, just carry on.
Make my mind up, to go though this,
Or be firm and sit in silence.

Learn from this,
Prehistoric dance and
Refrain from talking,
Solves our problems.


Medicated, could do some good,
Or find a way to relate,
Or just shut up."

Defining Moment


a road leading
from
nowhere
to a dream
from a desire
what was once
numb and
shut down
now-
revived
with
life-breath breathed anew
back into
the body
spasmodically
recreating
a feeling of life
a feeling of being alive
Are You Already Dead?
Am I Already Dead?
Or
Do WE merely have dust in our eyes?
hazing our view of reality
can you help
me wipe the dust from my eyes
as i wipe the dust from yours?
wanting to climb
higher than before
climb higher than
I thought was possible
wanting to think the
thought that was
formulated in my conception
wanting to discover
My definition in You.

Thomas Jefferson

"Shake off all of the fears and prejudices under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat and call on her tribunal every fact and every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, (s)he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."

No Admittance

Discontented and Complaining

Yet,
unable to
move on.

to change
and
to progress

STUCK

Doing your Duty
Fulfilling your Obligations

Completing your
Broken Dreams

YOUR Past
colliding with
OUR Future
abandoning US in
The Present
