    dotsPurgatory of Speechdots

    Why do you bother
    When all the battalions of faith
    Are met by all the armies of your doubt

    Why do you bother
    When all the dreams of hope
    Are burned in the fires of your despair


    Why do you linger
    Between the pole of dissolution
    And the pole of salvation

    Unable to find
    The answer

    Why bother to bless every sunrise
    When your heart is drawn to a dark wishing well of night
    And deep in your dreams you awaken
    But still your eyes see only the veil, of sleep

    Why continue, why carry on
    Why strive for life
    When the sparkle of death
    Echoes through you


    Why, when all of you are
    Is scratched and scarred
    And each piece of beauty is fed upon so hungrily
    When your famished soul
    Longs to leave

    Why do you bother


    Why walk the concrete
    Why suffer the cold
    And still wish upon the messages of heat

    Why do you stay here
    And day by day let the shovels of solitude
    Bury you

    You hang between worlds
    This limbo
    In this purgatory of speech
    And simply ache
    Ache for the love
    That you know exists

      You have a talent for asking all the right questions. You may call it limbo, but personally I believe we are already in hell. And the answers we all seek may just be to conquer this world. I've learned that I could smile even inside a prison cell..and with that I felt like I won. Why???
    I don't know...Just breathe
