    (I swear they think they know me.)

    I am homeless.
    Not quite, perhaps, by physicality
    But by spirituality.
    There is not but one almight home
    that is for me.
    However,
    I am held back by the trial called life.
    Which every human being has to see
    To test their soul and morality
    for wrong or right.
    I am a prisoner within my own dome you see
    and imprisonment makes a free
    place to sleep
    a necessity.
    But the only thing that imprisons me
    is weakness itself.
    I am not quite sure if I am myself.
    Tears are brought forth
    From a pain that is unseen
    As if someone has cut me.
    Unknowingly
    They cut some appendage that I need to breathe
    Obviously
    For I am very weak.
    I have no physical thing to believe in
    In reason, a person should know
    Whats real and whats not.
    I, my friend, do not.
    I don't trust anything thats in front of me
    Because anything can be taken away quite easily.
    I am weak.
    There is nothing I know that can protect me.
    No physical being can help me.
    Only the Lord's grace can save me.
    I am homeless.
    Please give me a place to sleep.

    Every person that we meet
    Is given to us either for
    Positivity or negativity.
    Everyone I see influences me
    Yet what we don't realize
    Is how it is to see through others eyes.
    We only think of ourselves
    A natural selfishness
    Just like the tenderness
    Of our childhood cries
    for attention.
    Yet no one ever stops to mention
    That every person goes through
    The same trials with
    different names, faces, and places.
    I feel time on Earth is wasted.
    If this is not realized
    This paradoxical continuum
    shall see the eyes
    of all of our children
    and one day will be their demise.
    It is this
    Which will make the world end.
    One day "life" and "death" will be synonyms.
    Which, naturally
    No one wants to believe.
    We all come into the world with
    Our slate clean.
    But it fills up so quickly
    that only white can be seen.
    Until, fatally
    One does not know what to erase.
    And one realizes just how much of
    a waste of space
    There has been throughout their life.
    Until one can prove
    to a child "what happened to me shall also happen to you."
    Each one will leave with a useless downfall.
    And the paradoxical continuum will become death to us all.
