AWAKE

I wake up to a cold sweat and rushing mind,to cold thoughts and a numbing silence,to an 
unaware darkness and a fading light.. I wake up to ancient conversation and unappealing 
words,to a retarded system and a broken cycle,nightmares of mocking applause and secret 
disgust,realities of an outsider looking in,of an alien assimilating to the human race,broken 
by the need to appease and fit in.. I lay on a bed of smoke covered by the sweat of my 
mind,persuing a seemingly eluding ghost,the habinger of what and who i am,a desperately 
sought after explanation,a thornless stem that pricks none the less. In all i still stay 
awake,debating with the shadows of my darkness,wrestling the titan that is time and 
change,i stand a miniscure figure to the colosal moutains they are,bent by the shadows of 
their presence and ever looming dominion..struggling to make form out of this chaos,but in 
all this i stay awake.
