The Story of Your Life

All you can think about is you. The very essence of subtlety, the art of procreation, the genius behind the brains, the Da Vinci of your painting, the Newton behind your rules, the music behind your song and please may I listen too?
All you can think about is the engine behind your brakes, the words behind your sentences, the reason behind your life, the soul behind your face, the pain behind your smile, a song behind your eyes.
And all you care about is you.
All you can think about is the hard work behind your struggle, the looks behind your thoughts, the idiot who is never right or the supremacy that can never be wrong.
And then darkness falls and all you can see is the inside of the earth.
And all you can think about is the life behind your existence, the shadow behind your countenance, the atoms behind your steps, the sound underneath your boots, reflecting off from the pavement as you walk along the street called life.
