Short Verse #9

                             "Irony in the realization that your life so far has gone exactly the way you did not want it to go. Sarcasim is knowing you can in fact change the direction you are headed but knowing deep down one step to the left, or one step to the right will still lead you around the same circle. Break free from the illusion that your actions do not matter, that your thoughts are trivial. Everyday we breathe and everyday we make waves in the fabric of the universe, from our breath alone. So we are giants, exploring this strange minature snowglobe."

Sarcasim in that "we are who we are" We will all do what we eventually will end up doing, and we all are at least somewhat concious on what that might be juding from what we have done in the past. Change, is the only constant in this reality that can actually be bad and good at the same time.

"I am my own sort of strange, a supernova of madness and brillance. Forced to share the same space and time. Sane enough to not be seen, yet not crazy enough to be heard." -- Matthew Wayne
