Alien Sled

Alien Sled

Posted by Merc on 11/21/2009
 Featured by Glass Munky
Another dry. Often I feel alien to our reality. Everyday it's wake up, work,and worry for so many while our thoughts become a microcosm of society's web making an unsteady and somewhat dangerous, unforgiving prison of our own demise. We could be different? It could all be better? Till we see that I'll probably feel alien.
