Patterns [#][*][Demo Version]
The night sets softly with the hush of falling leavesCasting shivering shadows on the houses through the treesAnd the light from a street lamp paints a pattern on my wallLike the pieces of a puzzle or a child's uneven scrawlUp a narrow flight of stairs in a narrow little roomAs I lie upon my bed in the early evening gloomImpaled on my wall, my eyes can dimly seeThe pattern of my life and the puzzle that is meFrom the moment of my birth to the instant of my deathThere are patterns I must follow just as I must breathe each breathLike a rat in a maze, the path before me liesAnd the pattern never alters until the rat diesAnd the pattern still remains on the wall where darkness fellAnd it's fitting that it should, for in darkness I must dwellLike the color of my skin or the day that I grow oldMy life is made of patterns that can scarcely be controlled
