Deciding to never again feel,

Evading fantasy just to stay in the real.

Avoiding the very thing that I must one day face,

The last place filled in life's race.

Hearing dream's deadly calling,

Bracing myself for the inevitable falling.

Yearning to know everything inside Pandora's lid,

Searching for everything that perhaps God has hid.

Emerging from the depths of darkness just to rid myself of my emotional cane,

Loving only myself and everything I wish to obtain.

Finally fantasizing about a life that could have been mine, but of course, I picked the hardest life, and walked the finest line.
