The World Around Me

The world around me
Is like a gold lined tomb
A Beautiful work of art
That holds hidden dangers

The world around me
Is like a rubber band streched tight
The tention keeps building and building
Untill it breaks with a painfull snap

The world around me
Is like a screen saver
a picture created by someone else
to hide the wrongs of others

The world around me
is like a golden treasure
fought over through time
to be possesed by only one

    what wonderful and realistic metaphors. you really do a great job of characterizing the world as you see it and showing how to live is a beautiful and risky thing at the same time.
