Everything To Feel.

My last reminder was a number
11:22, branch of blood splash
Help, the walls are painted –
In red, coated in red, revelling
In red, red is the colour of my desire.

That explodes outwards, sticky red
Substance, hard to take off, scratch
Wax, set it to flame, a slow burner
Hunch – sometimes, letting go is
Being careless, and yet carefree.

I revel in both, the careless and
The carefree, one makes me nervous
The other, a surge of adrenaline
Joyous excitement – enjoyment
Eyes, wide gleaming almost like
New soul-shattering discovery.

Being careless has often been a
Mistake, wish they didn’t go together
Consequences, be afraid – turn away
Don’t look them in the eye and stare
Before it gets ugly, go. I’ve been told
and yet, I refuse to be afraid of possibility.

We can’t live in fear. We can only live
By exploring our nifty curiosities and
Passions. The fear will always be there
I know, before the unknown leap –
But a life to live, and things to know
All I want, is everything, to feel.

Anthem

We live young, we live free

Unbound and unhindered

We run like the wind,

In burning fields, set alight

By the merciless sun.

 

We speak and we dream,

Of becoming the phoenix

Rising from the ashes,

Of our trouble and toil

Lost in our personal reverie.

 

We break the shackles

Of societal imposition

And live for ourselves,

For our worth, we know

Lies not in foreign perception.

 

Often we are lost,

In gloomy fogs that threaten

To engulf and suffocate

Give us a light, a gleaming guide

And we will find our path.

 

Often we run away,

And seek shelter in caves

Of darkness and despair,

Give us love, and we will know

That we were never really alone.

 

We are young, we are free

Lost in our very own reverie

We fight, we fall and then

We get up again and laugh,

Laugh at the madness of it all.
