Within the Gears

Within the Gears

A Chapter by JoshiDx

Life seems impassable
As the days pass away
Existence entropic
As I stop to contemplate
I wonder what I've made

I've examined the pot
I've peeked behind the screen
I've been staring at gears
For so long it seems
I'm stuck in a dream

There is no passion left
Just constructions of time
Exhausted living
Indifference finds
A crumbling mind

Yet few want the challenge
Churning with gears exposed
Most want them kept quiet
They don't want to know
The turmoil below

Though their tranquilities
Are but masquerades
I find myself forced to admit
Science confirms their pains
Their need to escape

So elaborate sorrow
Acknowledge your fears
Shake your fist at futility
It's all very real
But it won't help you heal

Think more of your moments
They're all that you have
You're a unique perspective
A capsule of sand
In an hourglass land

Tomorrow is calling
Forever for a time
Everything is fleeting
For now you are alive
For now you can fight

Someday you'll discover
Your moment has arrived
Some find it uncovered
Some find it disguised
Yet no one can hide

So treasure your seconds
Before they wilt away
Change is no stranger
Find tomorrow today
Before it fades

I decided to break down and write something here. Too bad I don't know what to say. What's there to know about someone who doesn't exist? Even if words capture the essence we are still at a loss for w.. more..
