Alone, I live in my semiconscious world;
whiling away my time to the beat
of the drum whose monotonous rhythm
forms the orchestra of my life
Words are a blur on the horizon
of my mind, while passersby pause
to look at me as I struggle to match
the symphony that plays within me
Then an alien tune tries to trespass,
beckoning me to follow the deaf
crowd further into an unconscious
world, into the abyss of confusion
Breaking through this chaos comes
a voice, loud yet clear and beautiful.
Startling me to consciousness;
Reminding me of my duty.
