by Christopher Shin

The world drives by,
and yet my mind blanks.
I don't know when the
world became a little

Sometimes I wonder if
it would end with bang
or maybe I'll just end
up on the ten clock news.
Sometimes I wish I knew
more about life.

Slowly my mind drifts into
a blank stare as my mind
becomes a dark crystal.
A mere reflection of who
I was.

No more joys of my life
seem to fill the glass.
No more girls whom I
swore the stars will always
be mine.

Only the cold fact that
the world cares very little
for those who dare not desire
to live in this world.

Does the world care if I live
or die? Or maybe I'm merely
just a mind going blank.

I like this poem. I like the idea of the blank stare as a black crystal reflection of yourself...maybe a reflection of your own CURRENT sadness as well as your past? Or maybe you remember feeling the "desire to dare and live in this world"...and now things have changed, and so have you changed in the eyes of the world. I hope I'm not butchering your idea/meaning too much with my interpretations but I really enjoyed this piece and am looking forward to reading more of my fellow Shin's works!
