Reality in the Unreal (revised)

A very real world with unrealistic beliefs
Rationality in the place of morality
There are no straight lines in this twisted world

But can this world be so elegant?
A deformed process takes place

Different cultures of countless origins
Warring for higher status
Lacking quality
Creating a monstrosity
As the imagination fathoms what is loved
Emotions of desire and greed intervene
Blinding mortal man

As those without sight gain realization
The truth behind greed
These petty desires can’t be stopped

Spreading like a virus
Incurable, altering, contagious

Rendering the victim deaf
Trapped in silence that has a second half
Existing in those deprived souls
Those who can’t say “I want”
Because they can’t hear it said to them

And when desire is achieved
There is nothing left to say
Silence ensues
Nothing is left
This reality
An unrealistic fate that can be avoided

What Good is One of Four

To god I gave my soul
To Satan I gave my life
To humanity I gave my heart

As Satan received empty glory
he laughed at his fools fortune
and lost his voice

As god rejoiced in his prize
he spoke wisdom in joy
and lost his humility

As humanity received its gift
fellow man fought for all rights to it
and they lost their innocence

All I have left is my conscience
in it broods regret
three parts gone, three parts fool

All that remains is one
in this one there is little
so what should be done with it?

the Fingerprint Font

I live to be alive
do I have a greater motivation
do I need one

If so what motivation would I choose
family would make sense
that classic photo in the future
the innocent image
father, mother, child
all in sweet bliss

Though the thought seems to cliched
so what other possibilities
wealth, fame, some personal dream,
I find all these thoughts to be overused
worn out ties on this ancient railroad

what about these words
this page
living for such a simple cause as a pen
perhaps I'm not the first to do so
a pen certainly won't ensure wealth
fame is hardly a guarantee either

But for myself this pen is happiness
the ink that flows to a page
this fingerprint font
yes this is my motivation.
