Here we go, pacing once again
another day in the khaki soul,
I can’t recall a sole time when
it was above legendary as a whole.
How many of us can honestly say
“I have changed so many lives today”
in a cosmic kind of way?
To actually have their actions convey?
Shall you speak what’s on your mind
and have all around you listen,
even if it’s not seen by the blind
they still freeze to hear your vision.
Sitting in a dark, windowless room
where a candle won’t even stay lit
rueful to cast a shadow on my gloom
burning its wax would share no benefit.
I lie in a mental painful anguish
a horrible way to waste life in sin,
I need to construct a way to vanquish
refrain from taking Easy Street, expecting to win.
Possibly walk outside and face the sun
to have no fear of the unknown
fearing not, to join a race that’s already begun
victory for myself, is to not be alone.
