    Sometimes I wonder who controls the light.
    Its off during the day,
    Yet on at night.
    You see, the day time is when I need to see,
    For it is when I travel through the maze
    that leads to my destination.
    But when there is no light,
    there is only procrastination.
    I can't see, I can't think, I can't focus, I don't want to.
    I just go through out the whole day,
    dreamin' about what I want to go through
    At night, I wish I could have made the dream a reality
    But I know somehow, I'll lose on a technicality
    Yet at night there is still hope,
    even when I am nothing.
    My hopes are that some day, I may actually be something.
    And I hope this is a phase that I can survive.
    Because for the last couple of years,
    I've felt far from alive.
    Sometimes I look into my eyes through the mirror,
    And I don't see much life.
    That's what happens when there isn't much light.
    That's how it is during the day,
    And why I long for the night.

    Virgil, this was felt...know what it feels like for it to be day
    but it's really night, inside..........who really controls the light?
    sometimes it's that special someone.....hmmm, thought provoking.

    nice scribe,
    Angelic
