††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† giving in

†††††††††††††††††††††† to everything it takes

†††††††††††††††††† the splintering of a branch

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† that breaks

††††††††††††††††††† reaching out for the hand

†††††††††††††††††††††††† of our glowing sun

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† where rain drops

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† &

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† angel tears

††††††††††††††††††††††† run the vibrant veins

††††††††††††††††† of these godly green leaves

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† makes ya stop

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† &

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† wanna believe

††††††††††††† I gotta see everything for myself

††††††††††††††††††††††††† a figment I've held

††††††††††††††††††††† in my di s to rt e d mind

†††††††††††††††††††††† since my time began

†††††††††††††††††††††††† a modest age ago

††††††††††††††††††††† a million in one design

†††††††††††††††††††††††† of destined dignity

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† has missed me

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† the grandeur

†††††††††††††† of my most modest etiquette

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† hoping

††††† my inhibited efforts have been adequate

†††††††††††††††††††††††† it's incredibly hard

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† to make

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† your

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† mark💎

†††††††††††††††††††††††† on the thick skin
††††††††††††
††††††††††††††††††† of lifes weathered hide

†††††††††††††††††††† some just dont make it

†††††††††††††††††††††††† but most of us try

††††††††††††††††† natures natural resistance

†††††††††††††††††††† to the wild fires of ego

†††††††††††††††††† burning in the wet winds

††††††††††††††††††† of a wicked permeance

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† gone

††††††††††††† in the material world of wonder

†††††††††††††† that we all seem to hide under

††††††††††††††††††††††††† it's what we know

†††††††††††††††††† our new age human soul

††††††††††††††† when will we be free to leave

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† free to go

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† to fall back

††††††††††††††††††††† into a pragmatic place

††††††††††††††††††††††††† where our shapes

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† &

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† colors

††††††††††††††††††††††† can never be replaced

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† embraced

††††††††††††††††††††††††† in this hardy frame

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† full of

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† cast into a prism

†††††††††††††††††††† of technicolor perfection

††††††††††††† composed of our
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† sunken
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† efforts

†††††††††††† from a vulnerable and broken past

†††††††††††††††††††††††† captured madness

††††††††††††††††††† inside this perfect piece

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† of

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† shattered glass
