Destiny and Change

A destiny manifesting itself

in the names written with blood

connection IS the 21st century

we've connected ourselves

from one desolate ocean

to another

and look where it got us

change was other times

and other places

stagnation is now progress

and needles are all our lives

pills our dreams

touching to feel

but the numbing to keep emotions in check

'We need to move fast

to keep this pace.'

'We need to go ahead

to know we're doing things right.'

time to lose track of time

and stay where we are

no one's quite sure what their protesting

but if we light ourselves aflame

at least we're remembered

as an inferno of orange

The End
