this world is no place for me
what difference does it make
if i go to school tommorow
if i get good sleep tonight
will it effect my future
what does it hold for me
some job, proffession, retirement
death
could
be
seconds
away
what difference does it make
if I am a lawyer, or a teacher
a police man, or a killer
maybe i dont care what happens
so why try in life,
why live for death
i am being shaped by the world around me

why sleep tonight......
why wake tommorow.......
what difference will it make
this is what has become of me

***lucious cade,
this poem is full of insight and with a painful need for answers.
i dont have them, if i did i'd gladly share, mind you if i had them i wouldn't be here...i'd be a normal 9-5er...
keep your head above water my dear, no matter how much you want to sink at times...

love lou  xxx

I guess the point might be because we have to live each moment...the moments can't escape us till they end - so why not LIVE them?

Good poem.

Hi Lucuis Cade,

Im not claiming to know the answers to your questions Lucious, but one thing I have found out for the question that are in my life is that the answers come when were ready for them and not until then, I have and am in this same spot asking questions of why and I could give my self all kinds of reasons but they will not satisfy me until I am ready to deal with the answers whole heartedly. I have found there to be no set direction to life and no one but us can fill in the blanks. I wish you the very best in your seach and welcome to passions.

Well said cerenity-1

 I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep

Lucius~
Don't let the differences make you -
YOU make the difference !

My friend, each of us makes a difference
in someone's life.  Find something of
yourself to share with another in need ...
and you WILL see what a difference it makes.

Hon, this is well-written ...
someone with this much insight is
capable of making a difference.
So breathe the air of renewal and
reach a goal today.
YOU ARE SOMEBODY ...

Well written Lucius and I suppose you won't be happy until you find out that difference...reminds me of a song which was about someone that found happiness...it went like this...what a difference a day makes...24 little hours...what a difference a day makes...and the difference is you.  James
