I will, said poverty
pulling tight his belt
straightening his spine
trying to look as though he belonged

But wealth wouldn't be fooled,
For it's often been said:
'Birds of same feather flocks together:
Poverty should edge towards his folks. Wealth wouldn't him.

In the end
Wealth and poverty walk hand in hand
Blind to the meaning of power
For only life and death truly rule man

Death was once life,
Before Life with death strived:
The claws dipped into the skin of the former,
Suddenly transformed the latter.

This strange ephemeral existence
leaves howling scratches inked in cursive
sprawled across a soul signature
left perpetual and everlasting

Go tell man,
To blow himself fan.
Bid him to quit another man's race.
And start his race.

So much to say with nothing worthwhile to convey
Just mocking depth with overused cliches
I rise to speak but feel it is in vain
I can't get a thought in edgewise for your words that crowd me

I see not things
the way people do.
If you call it black
To me it may be bright.
For our choices differs
As our Mistakes does.

Inverted lights of eyes overused
You utter as if to say something original
Mistakes as common as a tongue misused
For the power of choice all too often abused

Choice is meant to be toy,
Toss around till love coils.
When you dont make the right choice,
You'll definitely emploY force.
For right choice brings ease,
While wrong ones success freeze.

Spoken like an infant foreigner
Loose thoughts attempt to connect
Dots unaffiliated
With threats in the poorly knit tapestry

Stitches coming apart
One by one
Like the mind escaping
Its neat box.

When mind escapes his neat box,
He then visits an horse.
To bear him to another soul,
Where forever they'll be no hole.
But after his search of many days.
Without help,he returns again in the former to lay.

A box is but the boundaries expectations resign us to
Never meet your idols lest you see none are true
Disappointments forged when no one measures up to you
All we are, are feral stallions, civil till we all unglue
