I am not in the mood to be here.
I would rather be somewhere else
writing, playing, listening to others
play, surrounded by talent.
Yes, I think I am on the verge
of proving myself to be true.
For only someone who is true could
have such a love inside as I do,
could be inflamed by the very thing.
But there is not time for such things
to a full time human, like I have
become. I cannot write words here
any longer, my hand now beats as
violently as my heart. Thank you
for your time.

wow. i could say a lot about this one. this is at the core of my life's struggle - taking the finacially sound road, or pursuing my heart & soul's passion. i'll let you know when i get it figured out.
