[Part first: awakening]
September sun emerges through clouds, chasing across the sky.
Thoughts are evoked behind detached eyes but people are just passing
With smiles for protection.
Unable to see
behind the creature that he seems to be.
Once he was a child with
with hopes and dreams of what was to come.
So he's lost some faith but still there are fires
inside that he must drench to numb.
If we could try to share some of his wounds just for a while.
But we're all just
people passing by!
He's searching through crowds for one that is gone.
the facts one more day.
Talking too loud to silence the glow. Coldness becoming his way.
Empathy can't reach through all
Smiles now forgotten, locked in their frames!
Now he's counting time in beggings and bottles
beneath old news.
So he lost a war: "will I be dead very long?"
He can still hear his voice through the coldness!
If we could try to ease some of his pain just for a while.
But we're all just people passing by!
[Part last: nightfall]
Once he was strong, and filled with visions.
With life ahead he set his
Then things went wrong.
Now his ambitions have turned to smiles conserved in frames.
Still could be strong
could be a prophet!
He would teach truth to every man!
He'd see the light through every shadow, but Entropia denies he can!
He's sitting numb while dusk is falling. Alone he whispers his "goodnight"
Turning away, when sleep is calling, from
all the people passing by...
