A million lights flickering;
A million souls searching
For lost lovers, purpose
And meaning.
A million souls dreaming
About the future.
A million souls losing
Themselves in the past.
A million souls chasing
After impossible ideals.
A million souls crying
Over broken dreams and broken hearts.
A million souls laughing
At others’ insecurities.
A million souls trying
To hide their own.
A million souls wallowing
In self-pity and misery.
A million souls simply existing,
Waiting for the sweet release of death.

Yet, out of the millions of souls
That are stumbling and staggering,
Not one stops to look around
And really see the world for what it is-
A mystery waiting to be solved.
