I wish to say What I feel each day And pay the price, in hindsight It wages better than restraint Why remain in the shade Caved in, playing, portraying fables And charades, afraid Of what may lay beyond the hazy faint glow Of light that shines right into The cradle from whence we came Does it not awaken some innate Sense of exploration depraved Does it not suggest Some gesture that we just might be meant for Something more than lives spent In entrenchment surrendered But for enrichment And adventure The quest for questions And answers hence forth To measure our beliefs Against possibilities We will transcend our sense of ease For posterity.
I hope my ego will let me be at sea Keep at bay, perhaps will stay While I sail bravely Out into the capped waves Unafraid of the vague Unmapped, and unnamed Unknown, no longer keep Me coasting and safe While I may need the lighthouses To beacon round cape fear I still steer into the dreary Sights nearly disappear That’s what attracts me Where maps don’t exactly capture clear Nearly capsizing trying to navigate The atmosphere Yet persevere Headlong, headstrong, pressing on Solitary yet your sense of self Extends beyond the shore.
What you think is most important to you Probably isn't You can hardly, arguably Make that decision going in It's a retrospective distinction Recognition in the rear view A tearful glimpse Not premonition clear proof You don't know what's so meaningful At the time, naive to Seeing your truth In the moment the real you is real loose Our movements through the universe Skewed by mistruths Misuse of our given gifts Of unique use Luckily for us They usually sneak through Despite our best efforts Of trying to be immune To being our raw selves Being able to sit and chew The meat and juice of who we are As being individuals We will view in our memory And steadily recognize The times we showed up They'll be petrified In our minds Who we were, deep through the facade Faults and flaws and all That's what makes us who we are .
He is greatness you say That may be a tad fallacious His patience to new opinions Stands shaky with each day "Yes but he doesn't need to reason You see, he's a genius Don't let deceiving views Of disbelief get between us" So what does that make me and you? Unexceptional? Since we're not special at all Just some regular fools? Or expendables!? "Well I guess maybe that's just you Got to get with the best while you can, Or get screwed."
Never get a fair shake When the wealth ain't spread It gets shared among snakes They slick & shed skin Blend into the hedges Venom make us all hectic Yet they talk so sweet Make us feel diabetic I don’t get it Are we so discontented? We let wolves into the hen-pen Just to get some incentive If you could get the opportunity To be anything you fantasized Would you know what to do with it? Could you actualize? Ask sometime.
How come When you want to help, or be helped It’s hell Get played like free cell But they don’t free cells Least when profits keep swelled At the expense of other Peoples free will For cheap thrills We find our societies position Be enticed with pleasure Or be punished for resistance Theres no stomach for stoicism Let's bring into fruition Listening and good intentions Instead of alienated decisions Be the difference.
Work with me not against me Man my patience is empty No envy left in me Ain't impressed with legacy Empathy is the ingredient You're missing in the recipe It's everything The salt and pepper seeds My proof theory is that Ain't have to prove s*** Theres so many factors That vary, carry into success Or lack thereof, It's a crap shoot So you have to Do unto others What you'd have them have do True Compassion
They only tell you what you can’t do Not what you can Options are limited Stop signs and red lights like Roxanne No options are there Nothings offered its not fair Yet they dangle the prospect Out there in the air Of fame and prosperity And all that hogwash Nonsense, advertisement Feeding the harvest crops I’m not falling man You already got us Hopping over obstacles That's everywhere propped up But you can't con us No more, no sir We don't serve the conglomerate When we broke it don't work.
You better think twice Whatever lies you're peddling, I ain't settling with whatever My ties be severing Trying to better my life Not forever convalescent Check the supplements Collecting up there on my dresser Time to forget em Step up, be adept and adapt No longer adopting The option to drain untapped Be abstract, like Jackson Pollock With no toll or cost, hardwork Struggle is artwork Go ahead and let your art flourish.
Words may be evading But musics the translator When the orchestration congregates Communication interpretator All the world understands Common language of song Hum along with homonyms The rhythms constant in its cause In it's grandeur, no grand staff mandatory Just need to feel it It pulses on through you Like DNA helix No secrets withheld No unwelcome, no unequal No unwanted, no deceitful, No single Scarlett seal, The waves vibration Through all space and time And when they align All harmony unites.
