Everyday, every moment, Drum beats of time Enter my soul Disturb my mind.

“I have only one thing to do and that’s To be the wave that I am and then Sink back into the ocean…” Stealing lyrics I cannot write, Lyrics that wrote my soul, Writing words that have no value, Except filling that Postmodern hole.
