I was born in a place you've never heard of; in the turn of the century... I practice a togue that is not my own. I exploit it for my own twisted pleasures with sad and pitiful results. I misspel a lot. I don't mean to... I was raised in turmoil. I was brought up by children and have been raising adolescents ever since. I have a few good friends and only one invincible foe. I've lived in hell. It's possible that I've once or twice had a glimpse of heaven. A perfect stranger once saved my life. Perhaps I should save someone. I'm big. I'm small. I'm the odd one out. I'm the centre of my own little universe. I'm nobody and yet it is crystal clear that I am me. I'm greatful for every morning that I manage to get out of bed. I'm proud of my heavy armor. I'm proud of my burdens. I'll shoulder yours too any time. I belong to those who love me. I'm temporary. I'm random. I'm lonely but I'm not alone. I'm unimportant but I'm essential to the big puzzle. I am every other person.
Fleeting -It's on my left arm; it sears. It's on my wings; I try to bear it; in tears. It's in my chest; It beats. It's in the air; I suck it in and it fogs my wits. It used to be inside my mother. It still resides within my father. It's growing inside my sister's womb, as we speak. It fills every second of my time; be it minute, hour or week... I have it here, somewhere...Among my daggers and swords... Look! It's almost out but it's still lit! -Lovely. Any last words? -Yes. I wish I had some more of it. "Art is the imaginary solution to a problem that is unsolvable in real life."
