Take take Take it all No give back Fill your cup Never fill mine Feel the sunshine Let me stand in the rain I care, you don’t Push but no pull Receive but never give Salute but never stand Selfish, that’s your brand
I don't mean to only express myself Let's turn our gaze outward to something else Because really, we're nothing reflections and vapors our lives seem so long to us then as time tapers down to the end it's getting faster again and it's time that, my friend in this time that you spend looking out for yourself realize your wealth and your life and your thoughts they are just so small. I'm nothing at all but a freckle of dust but looking around there are millions of us there's a picture out there taking shape so we must have courage and dare to strip off all our lust for our own affirmation our self-presentation must find a foundation in something much bigger than us. As you cry to be heard pause and listen to hear for when long you have listened the Light will draw near and you'll find all the words that you cannot deserve so please gather the nerve discontent to preserve And climb outside and point out to the stars over hills and from you the joy and the knowledge will spill For expression is best when it's not just for you My confession is this, let it always be true.
I think this one is best read as spoken word/ slam. If there are parts where the rhythm feels off let me know!
