For once in this life,
I am plagued by the thing which has ruled mankind
Since the beginning.
I stop and look forward in this point in time,
the distance of knowledge far beyond
the reaches of the system--
the Universe. The knowledge of things past,
and the lack thereof in the future,
It tears me to pieces.
Inside, outside, the tears burn--
acid to the touch, they score my dermal casing
etching my veins deeper and deeper.
For once in my life, I feel truly afraid.
Unsurety clouds my mind--
I'm finding it hard to stand in this darkened casket,
All of it endangered, and gasping for air.
You caused this.
I want to scream--
yell, "STOP MOVING AND JUST LISTEN FOR A MOMENT!"
Insanity is in,
he wants his life back.
I am afraid.
Knowledge is a double-edged sword.
A blessing or curse,
I'd rather set it upon my throat
Than have it at my back.
