“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

The World I Watched

While I was mesmerized

By the movements of the world

And the little people there

That make it move and pulse

Through me a sickening feeling

That I thought I understood

You were doing greater things

While I just stood there

And did nothing worth anything

Just watched the colored screen

That trapped the little people

On the world that mesmerized me

So there you were…

Creating love and peace

And hope and perfecting

All the little people

And their lovely little minds

Enjoying what you did

To the fullest extent of happiness

Which really had no end

Until you smiled

And saw me watching

And saw I hated what you made

And I wished it all was back

To what it was before

So I could relish in the mess

Of  a broken little world

That had me mesmerized

And laughing at the fumbles

Of the game

Yet then you started reaching

To the deepest part if me

And further on you went

And I couldn’t help but stay

Letting you destroy my heart

To build it up again

Better than it was before

And you know what mesmerized me?

It was the beauty of the soul

I saw inside me

And I was saddened by the world

I saw around me

The life I led in standing back and watching

And pointing out the mistakes of the people

That inhabited the world

That mesmerized me…
