Hollow

Don't ask me if I'm okay

If you aren't prepared for what comes after

I will still live out my days

Though admittedly without as much laughter


I've lost what I thought I had;

What I could never possess

And there are times when I am sad

Or disproportionately stressed


So, if you're light of heart

Before you ask me if I'm fine

Please know there's not something in your world

That will replace what's missing from mine

Hey, Listen

The best kind of speakers

quote others in their speeches

because what's more important than speaking

is listening.

This life
Our lives
Are sparks from the clash of blades
Moments of cosmic kinetic energy
Manifested into a bright flash
During a grandiose struggle of opposing forces

Even the most luminous and tenacious of us
Will only last in this one moment
This is all we are and all we may be

Let us never rest
While the moment strikes

Exaltation

If indeed I can fly

Do not grab my ankles

I will kick you

In the face

Vital

This notion, the idol

This motion is vital

My efforts are tidal

I rely on a sigh

 

Though I can't quite figure out why

I can't quite figure why we lie; try

Unbound

Unchained

Untrained

Whomever wrote this

Ya gotta focus

Be with the best

Be new

Be you

Unaware of the rest

Unphased by the test

Set sights

See rights

Never stop

Never drop

Never stop

Never top

Right

Liberation

Keep it steady, keep it steady, don't let go

Hold the vision, just hold the flow

Getting ready, getting ready, don't stop now

Pushing through, pushing to, don't question how


 

There's no end in sight

No reason your might should falter

Pull from deep within

Discover strength that none can alter


No end in sight

 

But, no reason your might should falter

 

Pull from deep within

 

Discover strength that none will alter

 

 


 

There's no end in sight

To the strength, to invoke a monster

Steady or Not

My heart beats at dissonant tempo

How disconcerting it that?

Embarassingly disloyal

Frustrating

Erg

Vicious

I will make my mark

Whether open hands or claws deep

I will not regret

No fallout can abate me
