Our reality

Life is simply a gamble of wit 
and dismay.
We never truly win the war yet 
we create so many battles until 
all we have is ourselves.

As we grow the world ages 
around us.

And the color we use to know 
no longer glimmers as brightly.
As if our "training" wheels have 
been removed.
Forever naked in humanity.

We cover ourselves blindly with 
friends and loved ones..
For we are all alone and so very 
scared..
As we grow beauty moves 
away from our youthful 
homes...

And the world is so very wide 
and empty within a blink of an 
eye.
Nothing stops moving.
Emotions are like fire and no 
longer are considered 
"adorable" or a "phase"..
They are either considered a 
mistake or a mental flaw.

It's easier now to see the 
darkness.

Fewer people will come to your 
cries..
Fewer people will run towards 
your aid..
And the sun will sleep within 
the white snow.

Anime provides insight to this 
blinding emotion.
And in a way keeps us mentally 
sane.

-Robert Burton
