Center of the Universe.


Laying on my back,
Tryin' to get some sleep.
Feelings of hopelessness,
Overcoming me.

My mind is racing,
Thoughts are crazy.
What do I matter?
I'm only me.

A single lifetime,
To change the world.
What could I do to change it?
World's the same.

Infinite cosmos,
Soarin' all around.
I'm not in the center.
Do I count?

Lookin' for my place,
In the grand design.
Am I even written in?
Where's my line?

Feelin' out of place,
Nowhere am I welcome.
I want to find a home,
That's my own.

Suddenly I want to cry,
I want to scream
A single tear runs down my cheek,
From my eye.

Nothing I can do,
To save the world.
I'm only a single dot,
Not the center.

Here's the updated version. Much improved.

I updated it for my Creative Writing class Last semester. Read it aloud, even.


It's probably one of my poems I like the best...

Very emo. If everybody were to simultaneously realize that we're cosmically insignificant, nothing would ever get done and the precious internets would get overcrowded and would close down, AIDS, etc.

That's because you're self-absorbed.

You got the lyrics all wrong...

Quote:
Move slowly
Beyond the colors of my eyes
Move slowly
Into the corners of my mind
Rising like the Pegasus
Each and every one of us
Released
Islands in the sea of dreams
Always searching harmony
And peace

All we find
Reject our mind
Don't you wonder why

If the war by heavens gate released desire
In the line of fire someone must have known
That a human heart demands to be admired
Cause in the Center of the Universe
We are all alone

Show me sign of paradise
A place we all would like to go to
Tell me what to sacrifice
So there's a chance for me to want you

All I find
Reject my mind
And I wonder why

If the war by heavens gate released desire
In the line of fire someone must have known
That a human heart demands to be admired
Cause in the Center of the Universe
We are all alone

I have a tale to be told won't you listen tonight
Follow me into the core of the fountain of light
Try to imagine that hope is our ship for the soul
(Over the ocean the quest of your life lies ahead)
Maybe together we'll find there's a place for us all
(Follow the star in your mind, sail along sail along)


Damn Ed, the words you posted sound nothing like the song. You suck.

Because you write emo too, don't you!?

Probably.

The thing with poetry is that if you're writing emo, it's because you were emo at the time.

It's like a snapshot of that one fifteen minute period of emoness, now being stretched out over eternity because you were dumb enough to write a poem during it.

There's a difference to be noted between being emotional and being emo. Emo is Durrrr... (XxXeMoRaWkSyEaXxX), self-absorbed, and completely and unabashedly shamelessly whoreiffic about being so self-centered. Why me. Why doesn't she like me. Why do I have such bad luck. Blah blah blah.

Being emotional isn't bad. Being a self-absorbed little prick is, but there's usually no way to tell the difference via internets.
