       This poem sort of ties together my recent thoughts on my paranoia, and this story: http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/story?id=5008225&page=1
    It got me thinking, if a nuclear holocaust did actually happen today, this Thursday, June 12, 2008, would I die happy?
    Would you?!

    dotsIf the world ended today.dots

    Thought I was cured of my sickness that kept me hanging when I needed to fall from fear
    Thought I'd leave behind my childish ways, but it's the only thing that keeps me here
    All I've ever heard was ridicule, not ever that it would be okay
    Undoubtedly what I hate most is what makes me want to stay
    But now the threat of death to all makes me wish I had gone through
    A single snap of a nuclear wrist makes the whole world fall, who knew?
    Perhaps I fear what I know nothing about, but it's nothing to take lightly
    They say paranoia is awareness but not when you're on the edge nightly
    But somehow knowing I'm not all there makes me feel complete
    Like solitude and dejection puts some people on their feet
    I know nothing of my fears, but I guess I'll just keep learning...

    So, if the world were to end today, would you die a happy person?

      This is really brilliant. I'm a bit paranoid myself but I never thought the world ending. Just another thing to add to my list. (Just joking, really.) I think I would die somewhat happy. I've achomplished many goals that I made when I was younger and thought they were impossible. Thank you for stretching my brain today, it's been a bit of a skull potatoe the past few days.

      I loveddddddddd this piece, Nikki. It made my heart pretty much jump thinking about all that you're feeling. The only thing that kind of caught me was the "not ever that it would be okay" line, but the rest was smooth and flowed perfectly. Loved the vocabulary. Love you! :D
