Poem: Two by Two.

Two By Two
Two by two,
They keep coming,
Silent through the shaft,
Across the creaky floor,
Which is silent with their paces,
Quiet through the night.

Two by two,
They will arrive,
Now they come forth,
Trudging as weary soldiers,
An uproar of strife sure to ensue,
As they came marching,
Two by two.

Two by two,
Fighting for their archaic future,
Because nothing will change,
Fighting for their archaic future,
The future will all be the same,
Their ancestors will swoop and play,
Dancing two by two.

Two by two,
They will try to save and to be saved,
They know it is risky,
Their minute heads know it to be true,
Still they march,

Two by two.
This is a poem that I wrote.
Do you know what this means?

More Situations to Ponder. Also, Halloween.

You all probably know that Halloween has come and gone, and there are so many things that should be talked about.
First off, I should probably talk about the mood. The mood. It was... not as scary as five years ago, definitely not as scary as seven years ago. We were all seven years younger.
A few days ago, I summoned up my courage and went into a haunted house with a few friends. My heart was racing and I felt like I was going to throw up. I hated scary things, and I still do. Scary things are like huge predicaments, waiting to mess you up at any second. Someday, I might be able to face them and not feel faint. Someday. Someday will hopefully be soon.
So I was going into the haunted house, and then I went through it, and then it was done.
Done. Just like that. It was done.
And that experience made me think. Did us generation of humans chalk things up to be as scary as they really AREN'T? Did we always take what used to be a small problem and spin and spin it around in our heads like a washing machine until it becomes a big load of stress? Then, when we actually face our "HUGE PROBLEM," do we fail to see what the real experience is because we already have something entirely not accurate ingrained in our heads?!?! Is my Horrible Predicament a huge, overestimated situation? No. It can't be. It was too big. But is that all we humans do, overestimate, overestimate, overestimate? And if so...
Think about that.
And try not to overestimate it.
