I have found that what I put here before was very deep.
Just wanted to say hi.
So hello.

And remember that whoever you are, however you look, in what way you think, what you drink, how you express yourself, how you write, what music you listen to, and even how long your fingernails are, the only real thing about you is what you decide to be.

Once the world was gone.

December 4, 2018

Once the world was silent. 
There was nothing to shatter the screaming quiet
of the crashing waves and the yelling of the breeze.
But yet there was not a sound to be heard.

Once the world was colorless.
No crystal waters.
No glowing sun. 
No forest creatures.
No fireworks.
No moonlit flowers.
Just cold, sharp, hard grey lines,
stark against the nothing.

Once the world was dull.
Left to toil in the bloody heat
of an angry star.

Once the world was happy.
No hardship.
No death.
No anger.
No rage.
No pain.

No jealousy.
No lies.
No love.No peace.No freedom.

Only sadness lived then.
But what is better? 
Then what is worse?
When all that's left is nothing.
The broken ashes of a raging fire long gone out.
Once the world was gone.......... And then it wasn't.
