Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter

He gives me science and drama
and I'm wide awake, I've opened
my eyes enough to see what risk
and pitfall there may be when any
downside uncovers chance better
than this lonely desolation,
and this haunting.
I am not running away.
I'm not sleeping,
wide awake, I am listening,
taking it all in...
He gives me caution,
he gives me time
enough to think, he keeps
my feet grounded in the
reality of choice
and destination.
He gives me science and drama
when I can only give back
these token moon and stars.
