One persons craziness is another persons reality

and then there's this one

When I do count the minutes that have passed,

I feel and wonder in my dull red eyes,

I look upon the pastures dark and vast,

Today had been the day that they did die.

When ravens wander in the darkest night,

And children they do scream their names out loud,

When candles don’t give out their hopeful light,

When death has taken what he would have vowed.

Then why do I still see them bitter sweet,

And hand in hand at me they seem to smile,

And in this moment I don't feel defeat,

Rather a heart that may just need a while.

So when I come to meet them once again,

It will not come to a sorrowful end.

More real than solid earth;

But only another birth"

Exercise to stimulate, not to annihilate. The world wasn't formed in a day, and neither were we. Set small goals and build upon them.

I love the vision!  The descriptive way is truly amazing!  What a talent.  Keep up the great writing!!
