Listen to all the people
Look at where they stare
Speaking out against the night
Not even knowing what is the fight

What do you do when you stand there
Deaf, blind, mute, and in despair?
Do you join the fight against night?
Or do you join night in the fight?

They say acceptance is the only answer
It is not your fault, you can't fight cancer
They laugh at you, and tell you what you can't do
When for they themselves are the only ones this rings true

The ones that motivate you to not fail
But with every last ounce of you prevail
To not succumb to the ruins of life
But to instead shape your meaning of it with a putty knife

Listen to yourself.
Look at were you stare.
Speak out against the fight.
And find out what is in the night.

the true plan

"We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us."

-Joseph Campbell

the beginning

Cooper Kent sat in the lobby reciting his lines. He was next to go in. This was it, he had to get it right this time. The opportunity he has been seeking for the last five years he has been out here. A studio movie with actual money behind it and an A-lister already attached for Cooper to star opposite of. He had to get this one.

So much has happened in the last two weeks for Coop. Woken up by a call from his agent and a fax of the sides, he had just returned back to town this morning after going home for the first time in what seemed like an eternity. There was medical talk pertaining to his father. Something about someone named Huntingtons. He did not quite catch it all. Everyone wanted Cooper to take a blood test before he left. He had no time for that though, he had to get to this audition. His first in three years.

A distraught actor of age similar to Cooper's exits the room, shortly followed by a woman Assistant Casting Director, carrying a clipboard.

"Cooper Kent. Wow great name. You're next, hun."
"Thank you."

Cooper entered the room with everything on his mind, but the lines.
