Deja vu dreams glimpse what’s to come Veiling reality from perception Obscuring past and future selves What’s once hidden, again found in another Worthiness forfeit to the gravity of expectation
Fail, or follow
Trust is built on words of wisdom Drink it in or drown it out Connect to the sonorous vibrations Or feign ignorance while praying for more The evidence is prevalent to those whose hearts are open
Belittle, or believe
Fan the flame that ruins or refines you The choice is yours to build or burn it to the ground To find meaning in the minutiae A manifestation of subconscious cues Confirmation that the path before you is the one you’re meant to be on
Falter, or forward
This is a musing I wrote for Grieve the Astronaut’s “Signs” album, and this one in particular is about the titular song. I was asked to pen my response to each song and their lyrics and express what it meant to me in my own words. This one deals with thoughts of fate or divine paths, belief in ones purpose and meaning, and the choice to accept or dismiss the signs.
Walking through these paths A walk I feel I have taken These memories Why do things keep repeating itself? I remember This familiar feeling This feeling A feeling of before These empty thoughts Haven't I been here before? These significant signs I have seen them before I had this dream My reality, A repeat of this dream. Looking around Seeing new things Haven't I lived this before De Javu, Why do you keep coming back?
