[Roughly to the tune of this song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHZZmQ…
Coulds, woulds sustain who never, ever give their all;
Perished worth awaits who strives hard
But takes the final fall.
Scars spawn compassion; fear ravishes the mind.
Spared I several striving psychoes
Who'd left their minds behind.
Snarling cliques surround me,
Drunk in rite and
Eager to abuse.
Trappings, tones and signals constrict
All who aspire true.
Skulking, evading fierce failure's piercing rays,
Limitation tamed my surgence,
Consumed me in its maze.
Stringent ideals made me cower from defeat;
Self-immersion made me morbid,
Inert, hypoxic peat.
Time's tyrannic trample
Thunders close and
Makes me cease to care;
Cracks in my defences dilate,
Suppressions start to flare.
Endangered ego suffocates all vibrant seeds;
Fighting for another frees me
From claustrophobic weeds.
Self-conscience cast out, tiny grains accumulate;
Dormant neurons rise and ride free
And veins newly dilate.
Deep in dream remember
Heroes past and
Stout and gallant spines expanding
Ascend into the skies.
Shattered, my shackles scatter wide and atomize.
Victory resurgent reclaims
Its self-surpassing prize.
Shame extirpated, weighty burdens turned to air,
Ego re-emerges smugly,
The glory feast to share.
