War like Fire and Ice

One step through the fire,
one click past the heat.
No time to admire,
the displays on the street.
The battle we now face,
decides the future of our race.
But what can combat emotions left blurry?
More intense than a winter ice flurry?
In times like these it's never known,
whether you stand united or stand alone.
Conflicts like fire and ice all around,
raging for years but never making a sound.
Can one burn through the storm?
Can the other quench the heat?
causing endless harm,
shall we all be so meek?

Twlight's Truth

Ravished to the point of destruction,
Love is the only deduction.
Knowing that you're on my mind,
it makes my heart sore.
Knowing that you're one of a kind,
with beauty evermore.
Haven't truly seen in so long,
talked even longer.
It might make some weak,
but it keeps making me stronger.
A promise to you,
but also to He.
To give but one more chance for thee.
For the flowers to bloom and the spring to come,
I need not your presence some,
for the bell hath not tolled for thee in times past,
nothing worth the thought, or meant to last.
To see you in now, and with now all ends,
even if it's to be as nothing further than friends.

Waiting on Some Faith

Weary and weak, the days fly by,
Never the time needed to stop and notice what's close by.
Blinded in our present by a tumultuous past,
and how much longer can this feeling last?
But when He spoke to me,
He spoke of destiny.
And somehow, someway,
I knew exactly where I had to be.
You can hear it in the voices,
as they litter across the street.
You can catch it in the wind,
blowing on across the peak.
You can find it somewhere,
Not too high but not too deep.
Somewhere in between lies your calling,
just don't be afraid of falling.
It will catch you in it's arms,
covert the meek into the strong,
Take you higher than Mt. Everest,
And farther than the moon,
a little faith, a little patience,
your time shall come soon.

Meet Me in the Sky

As all the days pass by,
it becomes more clear why,
man was never meant to fly.
For what is one life's cost?
As we're praying for the lost,
till tears drown our eyes.
I know you can here me,
I've so much to say,
as I feel my hopes just slipping away.
Cause life has a reason,
and life has a price,
and wouldn't it be nice?
To meet me in the sky,
where dreams never die.
Oh won't you meet me in the sky?
Watch as all the birds pass us by.
So I'll be sure to meet you in the sky,
Cause I'll grow wings and fly,
promise me you'll do the same.
Nothing's worth a tear in your eye,
don't see the world in such disdain.
So meet me in the sky,
if time would never pass us by.
Just meet me in the sky,
even if it's just to get by.
Meet me in the sky.
I never knew how high I could reach,
now I know your always near.
Walking along Heaven's beach,
And your song had lead me right here.
So promise to meet me in the sky,

1 Cents Worth of Significance

What ho? Upon the tattered streets,
it seems nobody can hear,
the call of the forgotten values once held true and dear,
We can make up our petty lies and never reveal the truth,
and put what really bothers them far off and aloof,
a simple penny on the ground may seem like nothing at all,
put as it erodes, consider the fate it must soon befall,
for upon the horizons lie dreams of the fallen,
and such pennies do as well,
but until it is held in a higher light,
its dreams we can not tell,
all is lost if we do not see what's right before our eyes,
and it hits when you find your one cent short,
of ordering some fries

Feathers on the Horizon

As the majestic bird scans the horizon and fixes his gaze upon that place, the happiness he may never know, for this bird knows of the world below, thus down there he shan't go, or be killed, roasted, and served for show, so he must stare, but dares not go, or it shall be the last decision he will ever know.
Glides it does, across the night, with fearless ambition in it's eye, to capture the moment, capture the dream, and maybe capture adventure, so it may seem, but one thing is certain and one thing is true, he is capable of more then you thought he could do, because in his body lies a soul, one that burns and is never cold, one that sees the world and what it can be, a soul that burns as bright as humanity.
As upon the promised destiny, the bird flew off, both wild and free, to uphold the world's promise of a better life, and to overcome the toil and strife, he lunged out, into the open sea, but not too long later, he was shot down for a bite to eat, we remember this bird, and his bid to be free, and uncuff the shackles that effected you, him, and me.
Upon the roasting of thine meat, upon the cooking of thine feet, the smokes and ashes of freedom burn away as as the price of freedom the bird did pay, but not all is lost, for the power of dreams, can overcome obstacles a plenty, it seems, for he took a chance, he took a risk, even though the lord did not bliss, he may know rest there, in a world beyond, perhaps realizing his earth life is gone, but, it is not to say his life is nevermore, or to say he met his fate upon the distant shore, but to understand his dream forever, and why he will truly die, never.

To a Temptress

Along the fruited plains, it seems
that I have recalled quite the dream.
Despite what others may have said,
here I stand, innerly dead.
I couldn't foresee this turn of events,
or that my life was filled with such suspense.
As per, my call to arms,
I dare not wish to cause them harm.
For just across the valley there,
gazes a more feared enemy, both common and rare.
It lives, despite what others may say,
and stares us all down everyday.
But choose to look back, this we could do,
and risk placing the burden on you.
But the fact that choice is what we seek,
leaves this gazing temptress low and weak.
Which gives me the power to say,
live life, but, have a great day.
