two rather large glasses down,
one heart crumbled the other thriving.
Leave the shattered pieces on the ground
find the light
find the happiness and the warmth
that linger within
after layer after layer of singed love.
a fire that was lit and never put out
burned me to my core
leaving no light
no happiness within
no warmth for me to bathe and bask in.

The first mistake was thinking
I was the problem without a solution.
Really he just wasn't the
Missing variable I needed.

Light up the way
An arm around my shoulder
Guide me today
Stay until we're older

We know we can survive
Daylight won't end
Tomorrow we'll thrive
Today we pretend

on the adrenalin of popularity they thrive
it pumps within their veins so inflated
if there were none they'd not survive

an accolade won't make them feel deflated
they've got to receive all the bolstering
it pumps within their veins so inflated

always gathering plaudits for a holstering
which brings unto them that air of rise
they've got to receive all the bolstering

the supporter base not going into demise
devotees keeping the pulse throbbing swell
which brings unto them that air of rise

to be the premier acts in a long spell
falling out of favour they'll not easily tolerate
devotees keeping the pulse throbbing swell

much adulation ever liking to slate
falling out of favour they'll not easily tolerate
on the adrenalin of popularity they thrive
if there were none they'd not survive

How do you shake that
which thrives on being crumbled?
It's simple - you don't.

I don't want to just exist
I wish to live
Thrive
Be happy
Be free
Be me
I am a person.
With feelings .
Emotionally
Spirituality
Physical

the torch of
a feeble reason lit.

a decision made, ablazed
in a haste passion,
cursory images
fleet
as fragile foam.

the ocean,
thuds
lulls and wilts
promises.

his lean vessel thrives
on magickal waves,
erupts, as a time
borrowed torch,

bold and beautiful.

God has a unique Divine individual plan for each one of our lives
and if we recognize and follow it carefully each one of us thrives.

and the wine was good
fear was afraid
death was dead
life ran away
the moon and sun and stars
all shined their blessing
upon the dome
and this is how we

Who accepts change may just survive,
Though who adapts will surely thrive.
