Dawn of Inspiration
Age Group: Adult
In the midst of boredom,
In between yawns
Inspiration suddenly desperately dawns
Out of the chaos of quiet confusion
Dawns bright the morning of enlightened intrusion
With hammering heart and shaking hand
I stumble through a desolate land,
A portrait of a broken mindscape,
Lends itself to a written escape
Violent swirls of broken thought
Memories rise like scars
Earned from battles fought
Patience be the trophy virture
Ensuring that I won't come unglued
And botch the plans so carefully lain
Though I feel at times I'll go insane
Written words a solemn truth,
Echoes of my inner pain
So many people come and go,
They come and go and never know
They never know, they never know
The smile imprinted on my soul
To coat the lies, and cover and hide
The struggles that never will show
So rarely do friends come and go
They come and go, they come and go
They also go and never know
These struggles, my sacred holy war
Holding tightly ideals still fought for
The vision of a distant shore,
Feeling faint but fighting evermore
All my friends have come and went
They've come and went, our time together spent
And I'm left alone in a field of ghosts
That haunt and whisper and take me as host
And remind me of those I used to love most
And show me that
I'm not much more than a husk
A playground for myriad gods and ethereal dust
That taunt me always
And urge me forward
That push me closer
To the truthful horror
That life is beautiful
And a killer
Indiscriminate, and a mirror
Of myself and of my kind
Naive ideals I'm forced to leave behind
If ever again I'm allowed to shine
I must turn this graveyard into a shrine
A moving, loving, insurrection
All that's dead receive the resurrection
And all the years of endless introspection
To finally flower into fruition
All my friends that've come and gone
They've come and gone,
They've gone, they've gone
All my friends have come and gone
The strength of solitude is what I've won
And so I march on,
And on, and on
Always looking for victory ,
Over mountain yon
In the midst of boredom,
In between yawns,
Hope for the future suddenly dawns
With every word that I write
Though solemn contrite,
I begin to almost believe I might,
Actually be able to
