there’s ferocity in deciding
“I will do this
even if it kills me.”
a finality in resolving to go all the way.
the doubts are always there but lose
their power when you realize
it’s me or you, bud
and i have everything to gain
you’ve fought against yourself
vowing a lifetime of Can’t, Won’t
What if the single strongest force holding you back
from everything you dream, wish and pine for is
if you’re going to do it
then do it.
battle like your life depends on it
and you will never
be the same
love isn’t all it’s cracked up to be
in fact, i’d say it’s more
it’s walking through a field at night
where you’ve never been before
and though blinded and lost, you walk hand in hand
until there is a faint glow
as hundreds of fireflies rise from the ground
and light wherever you go
