The Outro

As the light begins to fade, the day is coming to an end
After the day of laughs, fun, memories, and good friends
It's time to finally go home

As I change for sleep, the memories dance around me and play games
The illusions of all the people I've seen and had the pleasure to meet.
I lie down and begin to embrace the memories I've had

It's time to leave this world, my time has finally come
Though I begin to think am I really leaving this world or waking up into the reality
As I close my eyes, the darkness begins to surround me

The world around me begins to peel away and the darkness steps in
It's warm, feels nice, I'm finally at peace
The wars have ended, there's only silence and darkness. Then I awake into a new world, and a new life begins.

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
