Due Date

The search for a due date never stops 
We seem to live in the shadow of our existence 
Tell us when the apocalypse will be, and we will set our watches
Seeking and stumbling in vein 
We want answers! 
We may know when our first breath was drawn
But when will be our last!? 
When the winds of opportunity blow in our favor
We pray for an extension of the deadline 
And sometimes
When adversity stalks us, and troubles beset us 
We feel incarcerated here
Some people want to leave this place
Some people actually do 
Uncertainty befalls us 
The faith we have is shaken 
And the 6 o clock news takes what's left 
Who will stand unchanged by the winds of rumor?
Can our hearts not beat inside the moments that we have? 
What life is it at all, to be afraid to die?

    First order of bitt-ness for you to handle...TURN OFF THE 6'OCLOCK NEWS....They are ran by the same swines who OWN this COUNTRY....Obama, GW Bush, Chaeney, Con-artist LezzA, the Banks, the Fake Money "federal reserve Joke slips" with NO GOLD behind them! Get your news from other sources, more reliable sources without hidden motives and Ponzi schemes attached to GOLDMAN SACHS
