Never- turn a blind eye, sell yourself short (but know your limitations), fight without dignity, win without humility, reason without empathy, let yourself be influence unnecessarily. Always- love selflessly, give generously, care generally, smile where smiles are needed. -Yuan

Forces

At leisure I went,
masked by mad hair with mad thoughts,

so easy does one smell the moss,
the grass,
the feel of icy water
against ones skin,
seems more so like a reality
than from the imagination;

the weight of the world, heavy,

like two fat gorging Ifrits on each shoulder,
where I’m made to feel each step

sinking,

deeper into the mud, treading
where my mortal soul will be embedded
that not even the devil could lure, or divinity can resurrect;
 
and in that place, for I’d burrow into the earth,
Where I could only hope for a growth to aspire,

For the sun to touch with a single ray,
to do but one good service
as by providing shade,
in place of a being, who once stood only for destruction.

A Glassed Feather

Swallowed wholly,

my body succumbed to the fire

as my heart resisted with ice.

Many nights I’ve laid vicious, eyes opened,

How when the rushing water started to level,

rising, as my body merged;

With eyes closed I opened my thoughts,

the smell of crisp plum when I was a child,

the caress of silk drawn over my face,

and those warm Summer evenings where clouds and skies

Shown pink, purple, blue, gray, silver, cream,

As the sun fated to dawn or dusk.

I ran toward a path of haunted shadows

beaten with delicate gold,

With all the leaves before me

I bound it into a coronet

Laden with dead blossoms for jewels,

I felt the pain that trickled

bled in crimson droplets

insignia with my flippant soul,

And to offer my crown to the faithful,

in knowing, nothing can last forever

but the moment thus when love was given.
