1.
Hours are excercise for the will to stay alive; from the countless ticking of the hands, to the falling granules of the sand. All the while, uncertainty of what could bring some joy to me keeps me frozen in my place with the same dead look upon my face. The books, the films, the sounds, the sights used to fill me with delight. Imagination knew no end; now boredom weighs me down again. Someone deceased that I once read wrote "There's something to be said for being dead", but I don't know. If the dead could speak, would he still say so? I wish a force would tear the sky, and drown the earth in burning light. I need to know what lies beyond the earth, the cup, the sword, the wand. I wish a force would tear the sky, and penetrate my covered eyes with blinding, piercing, burning light, and gift me with the truest sight. Knowledge is more powerful than money. Knowledge is more valuable than power. Knowledge is the key to unlock all this and more, though it can change the taste from sweet to sour.

Fortune smiles to show rotting teeth that bite into faith, and spit out belief. Gifts of pleasure and presents of gold are merely distractions from depths untold. I turn my back on material gain, and seek favor from a higher plane. A greater dimension beckons me to call, and lose my body to break its wall. Behind the veil, the other side of sight, exists a universe bathed in light. The stars never set. The moons remain full. Time has no meaning, gravity no pull. I forget who I was; I forgot what I knew. Action was required. and I forced myself through.
